Good data management strategy ensures the safe storage and protection of researchers' intellectual capital. It makes it easier to meet the demands of funders and publishers in respect of research data. Well curated and documented research data is more comfortable to reuse by other researchers, ensuring better exposure of scientific work and the replicability of the analysis results.
We learn FAIR's principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data during the course. Introduce why is data management plan necessary and learn how to compile one for a project. Introduce the best practices and principles of data management.
