SERISS Webinar - Meeting funders’ requirements – archiving and data sharing

This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who is involved in the collection of data and is considering making (some of) their data available in accordance with funders’ requirements.

More and more funders are requiring that research data be made available after completion of the research project, usually through the archiving of data in a trusted repository. However, research teams often still lack the appropriate skills and knowledge regarding how to properly prepare their data for archiving and sharing.

This webinar aims to raise awareness about relevant key data management practices for sharing, specifically regarding data documentation, gaining consent, and data anonymisation.

Addressing each of these three topics, we will provide a short theoretical introduction, including what FAIR means and how it is implemented, as well as practical illustrations drawing on a large-scale cross-national survey (the European Social Survey). We will then complete the webinar by providing some practical tips with respect to data archiving, in particular how to choose an appropriate archive or repository.
