Workshop on Research Data Management and data protection in the Social Sciences

This online workshop organized by The Austrian Social Science Data Archive (AUSSDA) focuses on the Research Data Management basics, Data Management Plans and common data protection issues in the Social Sciences.

The first part of the workshop is dedicated to RDM basics and Data Management Plans (DMPs). In many projects, DMPs are mandatory deliverables that need to be submitted at the beginning of a project and are updated throughout the project life cycle. During the workshop, we explain which aspect funders expect to be part of DMPs in Social Sciences and how researchers can benefit from (writing) these documents.

In the second part of the workshop, we address data protection issues that are common in Social Sciences and how they can be handled. In particular, we explain how quantitative and qualitative data need to be curated in order to comply with data protection regulations in general and AUSSDA deposit guidelines in particular. We will present how AUSSDA scans quantitative data for potential data protection violations using STATA and give participants the opportunity to test the code on their own data and devices. Throughout all sessions, we encourage participants to share questions and potential problems of their own research projects.

The number of available places is limited. Please contact about joining.

This event starts on September 27 at 10:00 CEST.
