Language of the webinar: Croatian
As part of the RDA Europe 4.0 (Research Data Alliance) project, University of Zagreb University Computing Centre (SRCE), in cooperation with the Croatian Science Foundation (CSF), the University Library of Rijeka, the University of Split Library, the City and University Library in Osijek, and the National and University Library in Zagreb, will hold a webinar entitled “Research Data - What about them?".
The aim of the webinar is to gather researchers, postgraduate and doctoral students, librarians, publishers, and experts dealing with research and talk about guidelines and good practices regarding open sharing and reuse of research data.
Why manage research data
(Prof. Dr. Damir Sapunar, Faculty of Medicine in Split)
►The benefits of managing and sharing research data from the perspective of a researcher and university professor.
Research data management plans
(Lovorka Barać Lauc, PhD, Ines Skelac, PhD, Croatian Science Foundation)
►Science Europe is an umbrella organisation representing large European organisations that fund scientific research. Given the need to harmonize data management policies and to provide researchers with greater clarity, Science Europe has presented guidelines for research data management. The Croatian Science Foundation will introduce a mandatory data management plan (DMP) as part of the project application from the next call for project applications, in November 2020. DMPs will include various aspects of data management from the beginning of the project, during, and after the research.
How to improve research data management during research?
(Marta Matijević, National and University Library in Zagreb)
►Research data management includes the organisation, storage, and sharing of data collected and used in research. This process saves time and resources in the long run, prevents mistakes, increases the quality of research and facilitates the progress of science. This presentation will show the most important aspects and best practices of research data management before, during, and after the research for an individual researcher.
(Ljiljana Poljak, University Library in Split)
►Data licensing and copyright issues are one of the most common reasons why researchers decide not to publish or use already published research data. This presentation will explain the importance of knowing the licenses and the characteristics of the most commonly used licenses. It is important to look at this from several aspects: the aspect of the researcher that publishes data and the aspect of the researcher that uses the data. Furthermore, general recommendations will be presented and useful tools will be provided to help researchers to choose the right license.
