[Pols-announce] FW: Free workshop on qualitative data management

Haider-Markel, Donald Patrick dhmarkel at ku.edu
Wed Mar 1 15:57:00 CST 2017


Data management is a critical aspect of empirical research. Unfortunately, principles of good data management are rarely taught to social scientists in a systematic way as part of their methods training. As a result, researchers often do things in an ad hoc fashion and only have their earlier mistakes to learn from.

The staff of the Qualitative Data Repository (QDR, http://www.qdr.org<http://www.qdr.org/>) has been invited to present to KU's Work Group on Qualitative Research a workshop on social science data management, with a focus on qualitative data specifically. Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited and welcome to attend. The discussion-rich workshop will emphasize best practices with the aim of helping participants save time and minimize frustration in their future research endeavors.

Qualitative Data Management Workshop
Monday, May 22, 2017
The Commons
12:30 Reception
Registration<http://ipsr.ku.edu/CSI/qm/workshop.php> is free, but required.

We will cover the following topics:
1)The value of data archiving and secondary uses of qualitative data;
2)The importance of planning for data management early on;
3)Standards and practices for managing, sharing and citing qualitative data;
4)Ethical, legal, and logistical challenges to sharing qualitative data and approaches to addressing them.

For the hands-on portion of the workshop, participants will work to create their own data management plan (DMP), either for a planned project or for retroactive archiving of already collected qualitative data they want to make publicly available.

Please join us if you are a researcher (faculty or graduate student) or if, as a data librarian or archivist, you work with researchers who might be facing qualitative data management challenges.
