#OpenData & #ResearchDataManagement – help for researchers

Research Data Management and Open Data and Open Access are increasingly hot topics for researchers.

Increasingly funders are requiring that your research publications are made available in Open Access form. Some are already starting to require that the data behind the research is also made available.

The benefits of having access to each others data are enormous, but so are the hurdles and barriers to getting your data in a fit state to share…….or not, if you’re well prepared. Plenty of researchers in Cambridge are getting prepared – why don’t you join them?

There’s loads of help and advice available at www.data.cam.ac.uk and sessions are regularly scheduled – take a look at some of the options below, and sign up today!
