Research Data Management Induction Resources

The presentations and resources below give a brief introduction to research data management. They are designed for use in induction sessions or similar events, or anywhere that a quick overview of the topic is needed.

Introductory slideshows

These slideshows all cover broadly the same ground, but in differing degrees of detail.

The presentations include comprehensive presenter's notes, and are designed to be usable with a minimum of preparation. However, if you would like a member of the DaMaRO Project team to deliver one of these presentations at an induction session or other event, it may be possible to arrange this: please contact us on the email address given below.

Data management fact-sheet

This fact-sheet provides a brief introduction to research data management, designed to be printed as a double-sided A4 hand-out (we are happy to provide printed copies on request to groups within the University of Oxford). The text is also suitable for inclusion in handbooks or other print resources. (For display on the Web, you may prefer this version, with embedded clickable links instead of visible URLs.)

Managing your research data - leaflet

A printed leaflet is also available. This provides an introductory guide to key data management issues and services available to Oxford researchers. A PDF is below; please email us if you would like to request hard copies.

You are welcome to adapt any of the above materials to suit your own purposes. Additionally, if there are further resources (or customized versions of resources) that would be useful, we are happy to discuss providing these.
