University of Helsinki’s Data Support has launched new Research data management site for researchers and everyone interested and working in research data management (RDM). The new RDM guide can be found from Helsinki.fi web pages in English as well as in Finnish.
(Tämä artikkeli on saatavilla myös suomeksi.)
The new Research data management site gives basic information about research data management; the topics include among others ethical and legal compliance, data documentation as well as opening and sharing of data.
The site collects many links together, while keeping it also easy enough to grasp for beginners in data management.
Guidance for DMP
The new site serves as research data management guide, and also as a guide for writing a data management plan (DMP). Data management plan describes how data is handled both during and after a project. A good DMP saves time, makes it easier to share data, involves risk assessment, and is acquired by many funders.
The sections one to six of the guide follow the same structure as Academy of Finland data management plan. Therefore, the guide is easy to follow and help in recognizing the important issues to think over when project data management is planned.
The new Research data management site is updated by University of Helsinki’s Data Support and feedback can be send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the new site, research data management services available at the University of Helsinki can be found from our service catalogue. For example, courses and workshops offered by Data Support are updated there.
