2 Data Lifecycles and Management Plans A bit of TheoryData lifecycle models and what they’re good for.Some jargon and definitions.From lifecycles to management plans.Group exerciseDrafting a Data Management Plan10-15 mins10-15 mins
3 Data Lifecycle Data Distribution / Archiving Data Discovery / Re-use Re-analysisProjectPlanningDataCollectionDataAnalysis
4 Digital Data Curation Centre Lifecycle Model because good research needs good data
6 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans What data will I produce?How will I organise the data?Is my data management working well? What data will I keep?4. What data will be deposited and where?5. Who will be interested in re-using the data?
7 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans What data will I produce?Text documentsArtefact analysesSample analysesSurvey dataDrawingsPhotographsRecorded interviewsEtc..
8 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans 2. How will I look after my data?File structureFile namingWhat file formats will I use?Which software will I use?Roughly how many files?How will I describe and document my data?
9 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans Evaluating data management:Is the file structure / naming understandable to others?Are further data required?Are new data types required?Which data will be kept?Which data can be discarded?
10 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans 4. What data will be deposited and where?Define the core data set of the projectWhich data will be included in the thesis?Which data are supplementary?Will I produce an E-Thesis?Where will I deposit my E-Thesis?Will I deposit supplementary data?
11 Data Lifecycles & Data Management Plans 5. Preservation and Re-UseWho will be interested in re-using the data?Is there sufficient information to allow easy re-use of the data?The best way to help preserve data is to plan for its re-use (Archaeology Data Service)[…in 10, 50, 100 or even 500 years time…]
12 Back to the Future… Who owns the original data? Are the data covered by Intellectual Property Rights?Are there sensitive archaeological data in the project?Are there personal data as part of the project archive?Will I have authority to archive these data?How do I get permission to archive these data?1.Create
13 Exercise 2: Drafting a Data Management Plan ….in reverse order What do you want / have to do with your research data after completing your PhD?Are any of the data sensitive?Who ‘owns’ your research data and will you have authority to archive it?Describe any copyrighted material you plan to include in your thesis, e.g. images.Will you be working with any unusual or large file formats?Describe the core data set of you research.
