CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide User Story

Peter Čerče, Data Officer, Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe (MICREATE) project, tells his story on using the guide for ethical challenges with interview data.

The CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide is designed by European experts to help social science researchers make their research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).

You will be guided by different European experts who are - on a daily basis - busy ensuring long-term access to valuable social science datasets, available for discovery and reuse at one of the CESSDA social science data archives.

The user story, across disciplines

We want to showcase the added value of the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide for the management of your carefully collected research data. We asked Peter Čerče, Data Officer, Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe (MICREATE) project to explain how it helped him. In the H2020 project, he looks at the ethical challenges with interview data.

"In preparing the initial version of the MiCREATE DMP we were using the DMPonline tool, offered in the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide. The guide turned out to be very helpful for working in the consortium of fifteen partners from twelve different countries. The CESSDA DMEG directs you to the European diversity issues in every step of the research data lifecycle."
