SSHOC Workshop: Caring for Sharing – Data Management and FAIRness of Migration Data

The event is intended for academic and non-academic researchers and policy-oriented professionals interested in quantitative survey research and/or EMM (ethnic and migrant minority) integration.

The workshop will start with lessons learned from a workshop the UK Data Service (UKDS) ran in November 2019 on data sharing from migration research projects. This will shortly cover practicalities and ethical considerations as well as innovative ways to collect and disseminate migration data, as reported by researchers.

During the workshop, we will look at how migration survey data can be prepared and processed before dissemination, how transparency, availability, accessibility and replicability of data can be improved and what resources and services offered through Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) could be useful in this sense. To the same end, we will use examples of data already available from the EMM (Ethnic and Migrant Minorities) Survey Registry and the UK Data Service catalogue. The workshop will end with an exercise evaluating data and metadata FAIRness.

Following the workshop there will be space and time during coffee breaks and lunch for additional activities such as a Demo of QAMyData (an open source tool designed by UKDS to check survey and numeric data) or creating a mock data deposit in ReShare, the UKDS self-deposit repository. It will also be possible to get more information about SSHOC resources and training activities.
