Short course “Introduction to Research Data Management” during the GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology

This training course on research data management is offered as part of the GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology.

Taught by the CESSDA Training team at GESIS, this introductory course covers the critical areas related to research data management: licensing and intellectual property, metadata and contextual description, obtaining informed consent for participation in research, anonymising research data for reuse, data storage, and data archiving. Teaching is delivered through a combination of presentations, exercises, discussions, and group work.

Participants will find the course useful if they are social science researchers working with quantitative or qualitative data (principal Investigators, researchers who are parts of project teams, individual researchers, and PhD students).

Basic knowledge of empirical research methods is a prerequisite for participating in the course.
