Bodleian iSkills for the Medical Sciences Division and OUH staff: Introduction to Research Data Management

Good research data management is a vital component of academic practice. Part of this is the principle that the data used to develop the arguments and outcomes of your research should be effectively stored and managed during a project, preserved for the future and - where possible - shared with other academics. This session introduces the University’s research data policy and outlines the practical impact this will have on your work. The services available at Oxford to assist you will be outlined. This session is not only essential during your current studies but will be invaluable if you plan to continue in research as a career.


  • Understand common dangers and pitfalls of digital data
  • Understand key principles of RDM and organising your data effectively
  • Be able to draft a data management plan
  • Understand institutional, funder and publisher requirements
  • Understand issues around preserving data and cybersecurity
  • Be aware of ORA-Data, Github and other preservation services
  • Share thoughts and insights about the potential of data management in your own field
  • Access Oxford based tools for research data management
