DATUM: Research data management
DATUM comprises two research projects carried out to support research data management activities.
The current project - DATUM in action - is supporting research staff on an EU project to plan and implement RDM. The project will run from October 2011 to March 2012.
The previous project - DATUM for Health - promoted research data management skills of postgraduate research students in the health studies discipline through a specially-developed training programme which focuses on qualitative, unstructured research data.
Both projects received funding from JISC under their Managing Research Data (JISCMRD) Programme.
A book chapter on RDM has been published:
