Research Data Management Session on Data Deposit - Dec. 14
The final installment of the Research Data Management (RDM) Brown Bag Series is being held on December 14 at 12-1 pm. This event will be held in person in Joseph S. Stauffer Library room 014, and is also available virtually via zoom. This 3-part RDM information series is hosted by the Queen’s Data Champions (qDC) - a collaboration with the Vice-Principal (Research) portfolio, the Centre for Advanced Computing, Information Technology Services, and Queen’s University Library.
Registration for the final session is now open.
This session focuses on the benefits and considerations around depositing research data into a repository. Featured topics will include how to select a repository for specific research data, how to prepare research data for deposit, and avenues for licensing data for reuse.
The qDC will also be demonstrating how to use and deposit data into the Queen’s Dataverse Collection of Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository. Additionally, attendees will learn how the Tri-Agency RDM Policy may influence how they deposit and share research data associated with publications from Tri-Agency funded projects.
The final session features special guest presenter Dr. Robert Montgomerie, Professor Emeritus of Biology and Data Editor for The American Naturalist.
