Release of new Data Management textbook from the UK Data Archive

released over 6 years ago

Researchers, postgraduate students and research institutions now have a comprehensive and up-to-date resource for planning their data.  On 29 March 2014, the academic publisher SAGE released a new handbook authored by four experts from the UK Data Archive and UK Data Service that consolidates 20 years of expertise in the area.

Book cover

Managing and Sharing Research Data: A Guide to Good Practice is a 240-page compendium of advice, examples, case studies and exercises covering a wide range of topics:

  • how to plan your research using a data management checklist
  • how to format and organise data
  • how to store and transfer data
  • research ethics and privacy in data sharing and intellectual property rights
  • data strategies for collaborative research
  • how to publish and cite data
  • how to make use of other people's research data
This is information of critical interest now, as research funders in Australia, the UK, US and across Europe are implementing data management and sharing policies to maximise the transparency, reuse and accountability of research data funded and produced.
The book is available in hardback and paperback and can be ordered online. Orders through SAGE are eligible for a £4.99 discount; enter the promotional code UK14SM12 at checkout.
