Wednesday, March 1, 2023
12 – 1 p.m. (MT)
Previous webinars in this series have provided overviews of Research Data Management (RDM) and data management plans (DMPs). This session will focus on information specific to social sciences and humanities. We’ll look at common types of data in these disciplines as well as discipline-specific tools and resources. Case examples will illustrate different approaches to data management in the humanities and social sciences.
