HDR candidates must attend this session at least once during the first 12 months of candidature (full-time equivalent).
This workshop will introduce research HDR candidates to the emerging practice of eResearch and the impact that modern data-centric practices will have on all research disciplines. Funding agencies and institutions are now moving to require not only that the outputs of your research (e.g. papers) but also the primary research data that you use are made more openly available wherever possible. The motivations for this change in policy and practice are to do with data reusability and also ensuring data integrity. As a result of these changes, research data management is becoming more important and concepts such as ‘metadata’ – data about data, licensing and IP ownership – are becoming more important for all researchers to understand. The move to open data and systems is also resulting in entirely new forms of research being possible. Generally available IT tools and open, discoverable data are creating new data centric approaches to research.
