MANTRA Data Management Course

MANTRA Data Management Course
Definition: 

The MANTRA Data Management Course is a non-credit, free course that provides guidelines for good practice in research data management created by the University of Edinburgh, Scotland and EDINA. The course is particularly appropriate for postgraduate students and early career researchers who work with data and would like to learn more about managing their research data. The course content is mainly geared towards three disciplines: geosciences, social and political sciences and clinical psychology – however, many of the issues covered apply equally to all research disciplines. Librarians can use this course as an introduction to data management in order to become more familiar with the concepts and tasks required of researchers throughout the data creation process.
