… our posts to the Digital Scholarship @ Leiden Blog. Please check there for new posts on datamanagement, open access, open science, impact and many more. But don’t worry, this blog will stay in place until we have found a nice home for all our content.
The Centre for Digital Scholarship organises a network event for all datamanagers within Leiden University and the LUMC. Main goal is to get to know each other, learn about the different roles, share best practices and maybe find solutions to common problems.
There is a lot of interest in datamanagement nowadays from different points of view: research quality, open science, reuse of data, big data etc. Leiden University is running a three years programme to implement the data management policy. Many people within the University are involved in data management support for researchers. Some are called datamanagers, others might be data stewards, data engineers or data librarians. Job descriptions, tasks and skills vary from one person to the other, but we all help to improve the quality of data collection, modelling, analysis or access to the data. Are you one of those people? Join us for this informal gathering!
The network event is organised by the Centre for Digital Scholarship (CDS). The datalibrarians at the CDS offer general training and support to researchers, We kindly invite all datamanagement support staff at Leiden University to join us on Monday June 19, 15.00 – 17.00 at the University Library, Witte Singel 27, Leiden. Please register using this form: https://leidenuniv.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bqHz6HPouiQzXdr.
Are you interested but not able to join us on this date? Please let us know by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Welcome to the Leiden Research Data Blog. This blog has been set up to keep you informed about research data management activities at Leiden University. We shall communicate the latest news, report progress made by various projects and offer you a platform to share best practices.
We invite all members of the Leiden University community to post here on their data management experiences.
