Lecturer: Irena Vipavc Brvar, Social Science Data Archives, Slovenia
Each research project should start with identifying and reviewing work done so far. As we review literature, we should also be reviewing data and documentation that can serve as a basis for our new research or be used as secondary data for our analysis.
The goals of this session are:
– to be able to develop a clear picture of the data you need,
– to locate appropriate data resources,
– to evaluate data quality and introduce different access to data,
– to understand how you can use documentation in your own research.
Examples provided will focus on Social Science and Humanities using the Data Management Expert Guide (dmeg.cessda.eu) but are still broad enough to be used in all disciplines.
