This book is a ‘must have’ for anyone teaching or learning about this topic. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery and at the end will be well equipped to manage and share research data in all aspects.
This book remains an essential guide for researchers and data professionals concerned with best practice data management. Accessible. Practical. Comprehensive. This edition has been revised and updated to address legal changes as well as challenges posed by new forms of data. This is a trusty companion for novices and experts alike. Highly recommended.
Written by experts in the field, this book offers a comprehensive introduction to key topics in research data management across the whole research lifecycle. Already established as an indispensable handbook, this new edition provides up to date case studies, practical guidance and extensive references. Highly recommended.
Data are a major asset of economic and social research, and the quality and provenance of research datasets fundamentally underpins the extent to which they can subsequently be shared and reused. The ESRC is the UK's largest funder of research on social and economic issues and has long been at the forefront of promoting the importance of data sharing.
For CESSDA, as consortium of trusted repositories that offers a research infrastructure with tools and services for data producers and data re-users, good data practices throughout the data lifecycle are deemed essential to facilitate high-quality research that benefits society.
The book covers several concerns that are essential for research data management. I already prepared two talks on the topic, one for a broader audience of BSc and high-school students and another for an audience of software engineering researchers. The book has helped me to identify several tasks in data management that are useful for creating and sharing research artifacts. Many of them have been used to design a guideline set for research artifacts in a subarea of software engineering (https://mdeartifacts.github.io/).
Excellent text for supporting students through the research process.
Well written and comprehensive. Nevertheless, the topic is not really in the focus of this course. Therefore added to the reading list
