digital academic repositories

The Digital Academic Repositories (DARE) programme is a joint initiative of the National Library of the Netherlands (KB), the Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). DARE's aim is to store the results of all Dutch research in a network of repositories, in which the National Library fulfils the role of safe place in charge of digital preservation. In this way all participants retain responsibility for and control over their own data while making them accessible at the same time. Moreover, as the KB takes responsibility for storage and long-term preservation, the universities can concentrate on their research work.

dmtpsych

The aim of this project is to build capacity and skills within psychology postgraduates relating to research data management. The project will build upon existing research data management materials developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) to create discipline-focussed postgraduate training materials that can be embedded into postgraduate research training for the psychological sciences. The materials will consist of: PowerPoint slides to be used in lectures and an associated workbook containing psychology specific guidance on completing the DCC's Data Management Planning Tool (DMPT) (including worked examples), and a copy of the DMPT to be completed by students. The lectures will be structured along the lines of the existing DCC DMPT with the eight key sections forming the centrepiece of six psychology specific lectures of two hours each. Prior to the launch of the training materials the guidance will be transferred to the online DCC Data Management Planning Tool in collaboration with DCC. The training materials will be developed and piloted in the department of psychology at the University of York, in partnership with the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. Other departments within the psychological sciences will be invited to trial the pilot materials before the official launch. Project start date: 2010-08-01. Project end date: 2011-07-31.
