Dr Erika Whiteford has kindly written a research data management case study for the Lakes and the Artic Carbon cycle project. Erika’s case study highlights the value historic research data brings to our understanding of the future. It also illustrates the importance of managing research data and sharing it for possible future studies.
Erika’s case study is available via the university Library’s Research Support web pages.
Thanks to Professor Rob Wilby, we have our first research data management case study. Rob talks about his research into Flood indices for Britain (1881-2011) and reasons for making the data public. These include benefits to the public, improving dissemination and uptake of research, and improved visibility which can lead to greater citation.
Rob’s case study is available via the university Library’s Research Support web pages. We aim to offer further case studies on different aspects of research data management in the coming months.
