Oct 21, 2022

The Vice-Principal Research Portfolio and Queen’s Data Champions (qDC) are set to host the first of three information sessions on Research Data management (RDM) on November 2, 2022. These sessions will be hybrid, with both online and in-person attendance welcome. Those wishing to attend the sessions in person can do so at the new Staff/Student Learning Centre located on the lower level of Joseph S. Stauffer Library in room 014.

The RDM Brown Bag Information Series is a 3-part series on research data management. The series will begin by introducing the broader RDM ecosystem, before focusing on specific elements, such as data management plans (DMPs) and data deposit.

LInks to more details and session registration can be found below. Register in advance to secure your spot in-person or online:

Session 1: Research Data Management and You (Nov 2, 12:00-1:00PM)

Session 2: Developing a Data Management Plan (Nov 23, 12:00-1:00PM)

Session 3: Deposit Your Research Data in a Repository (Dec 14, 12:00-1:00PM) 

The first session is an opportunity to learn about research data management, including what it is, why it is important, and its potential impacts. You will also learn about the three pillars of the Tri-Agency RDM Policy and how the second and third pillars (data management plans and data deposits, respectively) may impact grant applications and/or research projects in 2023.

The qDC will also introduce attendees to the Queen’s University Institutional RDM Strategy and how they can provide feedback on the strategy. The session will conclude with ample time for a question and answer session, so attendees are encouraged to pose any RDM questions they might have.  

The Queen's Data Champions promote the use of wise research data management (RDM) practices at Queen’s University. Involving membership from the Centre for Advanced Computing, Information Technology Services, Queen’s University Library, and the Vice-Principal Research Portfolio, the Queen’s Data Champions (qDC) team intends to enable the research community to strengthen its ability to fulfill the requirements outlined in the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy  (2021), including data management planning and data deposit.
