Save the date! Research Data Resolutions event on 24th Jan

Start the New Year by joining us to reflect on how we manage research data at the OU, and think about how we can work together in 2018!

Managing research data is a hot topic and the focus of much debate and effort among the research community.

Expectations to share data and create Data Management Plans are just two issues which raise a number of questions, such as ‘What are the benefits and barriers of data sharing?’ and ‘are funder requirements clear and realistic?’

There are also an increasing number of tools and services available to researchers – are they the right ones? Do they do what they need to do?

The Library Research Support team invite you to an open discussion to talk about all of this and more, and to find out what the important issues are to researchers at the OU.

So please join us to talk about what managing research data means to you and your work. Bring your questions, thoughts and experiences to discuss over refreshments and biscuits. You’re welcome to bring your lunch too.

If you have a topic you’d like to discuss, feel free to email us in advance at, and we’ll make sure we get to it on the day.

Date/Time/Location: Wednesday 24 January 2018, 13:00-14:00. Ambient Lab, Jennie Lee Building, Walton Hall.
