Responsible Open Science - Workshop on the fundamentals of Research Data Management for Social Scientists

During two half days on 14 and 17 June, ODISSEI, CESSDA-ERIC and DANS will organise a workshop on research data management for starting researchers in the social sciences.

The workshop, organised by ODISSEICESSDA-ERIC and DANS, will answer questions including:

  • What are the benefits of documenting your research in a Data Management Plan?

  • How do you organise your data well?

  • How can you make your research reusable, even if you are working with sensitive data?

The workshop is designed for early career researchers in the social sciences who wish to gain a better understanding of Research Data Management (RDM), FAIR data and Open Science. We will guide you in developing your own data management plan. The workshop is organised as an interactive event, where hands-on sessions will be followed by presentations introducing the various aspects of RDM along the Research Data Life Cycle.  

The workshop is based on the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide and focuses particularly on issues of RDM relevant to social science researchers working with quantitative data. We will discuss GDPR and ethical issues in working with quantitative social science data. 

The event will take place online, is free of charge, and will be held in English.

Please note that this is a two-days event and we require participants to take part in both days. In addition, you will receive an assignment to work on in between the two days which will require a few hours of your time in between the two days.


There are limited spaces available and we may prioritise registrations based on their motivation in case we receive more registrations than spaces available. 

The maximum amount of participants has been reached, so registration is now closed. Please contact Francesca Morselli for a spot on the reserve list. 

Please note that the presentations - not the breakout session and discussions - will be recorded.
