Scholarly Communication

 

Have you ever had problems locating the latest version of a file, or come across obscure file names?

Researchers receive, collect and need to manage a lot of information from different sources. 

Additionally, some researchers will also work with research data. Research data takes many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications.

Managing digital information properly is a complex issue, but done correctly from the start, could save you a lot of time and hassle - when preparing a publication or writing up your thesis.

This session will introduce:

  • Strategies for backing up your computer
  • Strategies for naming and organising your files
  • Strategies for file exchange with collaborators
  • Funder requirements for making your digital information (or data) available

 

This session is part of a series run by the Office of Scholarly Communication for PhD students in Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.  You may be interested in:
