Social science is undergoing a transparency revolution.
Funders, journals, other researchers, and the public increasingly expect
research data and methods to be shared.
In this practical workshop, you will learn how to plan your research
from the beginning to be able to meet such demands. We will focus on key considerations for data
management of social science projects such as organization, documentation and
metadata, data security, and participant confidentiality. Relatedly, we will
discuss how to approach informed consent with human participants in the context
of data sharing and will present informed consent templates to use as a
starting point. Additionally, we will review various on- and off-campus
resource data professionals and organizations which could be of assistance in
the process of planning and implementing one’s data management.
All members of the SU community are welcome, although the
event is geared toward students and faculty currently preparing grant
applications (internal or external) for projects that include empirical data
collection involving human participants.
Lunch will be served. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by
February 12 to register for the event. The Qualitative Data Repository is
hosted at the Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry.

The event is part of the annual, worldwide Love Data Week (https://lovedataweek.org),
whose focus this year is on working with students to help them get to know the
data specialists at their institution, the kinds of work they do, and the data
and associated issues that these data specialists engage with.
