CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide User Story
Duncan Simpson, a Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute of Social Sciences, the University of Lisbon, tells his story on using the guide for heterogeneous data collection.
The CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide (DMEG) is designed by European experts to help social science researchers make their research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).
The user story, across disciplines
Duncan's research project aimed to challenge the existing historiographical narrative on the relation between ordinary citizens and the Salazarist political police (PIDE).
We asked him how the DMEG had helped him design his Data Management Plan.
The benefits and impact of using the CESSDA DMEG were manifold and far-reaching. In collaboration with ICS’s own Data Protection Officer, I was able to design a solid and secure DMP that was subsequently approved by the authorities of the Marie Curie Fellowship actions.
