Research Data Management

An Introduction

Since a great deal is invested in obtaining valuable research data, good data management is important. But what does that involve? How do you ensure that your data remain accessible and usable in the future, for yourself and others? This introductory workshop will help you get started.

Course description

The workshop centers around the data management plan (DMP): a digital document in which you describe what data you are going to collect during your research project, how you will store and manage the data during the project, and what will happen to the data after the project has finished.

Planning for data management reduces the chances of having to face nasty surprises later in your research. It will save you time, work and money. Moreover, a growing number of research funders make a (succinct) DMP mandatory.


New dates will be announced in September!


Please sign up for the waiting list if the course is fully booked. We will contact you if a place opens up. Thanks.

Class themes

After attending the workshop, you will

  • understand what research data are and what management of research data involves,
  • have successfully completed a DMP for your research project, and
  • know who to ask for help with any data management issues.


At the end of the first meeting you will be asked to complete a DMP for your current research project. A template will be provided. In the second meeting, we’ll discuss your DMPs and any issues you may have come across.


The workshop will be given by Hanna Fricke. Hanna has a PhD in Linguistics and is the Data Steward of our Faculty.
