Managing and sharing your research data: Advice and support for University of Cambridge researchers

This message is being sent from the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research to all University of Cambridge research staff and research students

Dear Colleagues,

Managing and sharing your research data: Advice and support for University of Cambridge researchers

Most research funders (including Research Councils, charities and foundations) have introduced policies on research data management. The general expectation is that data from publicly funded research projects should be appropriately stored and made openly available with as few restrictions as possible.

In order to support Cambridge researchers in meeting these requirements, the University is undertaking a broad range of activities aimed at increasing awareness and providing help. Our Open Data team is making presentations and taking questions at open meetings, Departmental meetings, Research Operations Office School meetings and meetings with administrators and librarians, as well as providing online support and information about research data management at www.data.cam.ac.uk.

If you would like to know more about the requirements that may apply to your research data, and the help offered by the University, please come to a lunchtime ‘Open Data’ session: http://www.data.cam.ac.uk/open-data-lunchtime-information-sessions-register-now. These sessions are open to all researchers, staff and research students from the University of Cambridge, and they are being scheduled in various locations so that you can choose the most convenient one: in central Cambridge, at the Addenbrooke’s site or at West Cambridge.

If you have any further questions, please e-mail the Research Data Facilitator, Dr Marta Teperek, directly.

Kind regards,

Lynn Gladden

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research

University of Cambridge
