Research IT Reading Group: Support Your Data: Renaming Research Data Management

May 2, 2019, 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Students
Part of series: 

Researchers are faced with rapidly evolving expectations about how they should manage and share their data, code, and other research materials. To help them meet these expectations and generally manage and share their data more effectively, the University of California Curation Center (UC3) team is developing a suite of tools which we are currently referring to as "Support Your Data." These tools include a rubric designed to enable researchers to self-assess their current data management practices and a series of short guides that provide actionable information about how to advance practices as necessary or desired. Drawing upon other tools with similar aims, such as maturity-based frameworks and visualizations like the research data lifecycle, UC3 worked to ensure that our tools are user friendly, free of jargon, and adaptable enough to meet the needs of a range of stakeholders working in various institutional and disciplinary contexts. The content is available from the reference below and we are now focused on designing the presentation of both the rubric and guides in physical media and online.

Series description

The Research IT Reading Group has met biweekly since April 2013 to discuss topics touching support of research at UC Berkeley. Topics typically rotate among:

  • campus researchers describing and discussing their computational and data-intensive research practices and needs;
  • evaluation of new research methods, technologies, and campus services as candidates for support based on fit to Berkeley researchers’ needs and feasibility; and,
  • avenues for collaboration among research support organizations, on campus and nationally, aimed at reaching and assisting a broader community of UC Berkeley domains and researchers.

Reading / review materials are provided a week ahead of each scheduled meeting, which may include peer-reviewed or conference papers, slide presentations, project or technology web sites, etc. 

You are welcome to bring your lunch. Watch the AIS website or subscribe to the mailing list to receive information about the readings (usually sent out a week in advance).
