New Population Research UK workshops aim to boost the sharing of Longitudinal Population Studies data

UK Data Service is launching a series of workshops aimed at Longitudinal Population Studies (LPS) data managers looking to further enhance their data management skills and data sharing strategies.

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) have generously funded the UK Data Service’s project “Skills Development for Managing Longitudinal Data for Sharing”. The workshops are delivered as part of the activities undertaken by Population Research UK aimed at further maximising the sharing of LPS data.

These workshops address the need within the LPS community for standardised data management procedures, with a particular focus on wider data sharing. They will introduce a range of topics from ethical and legal considerations to best practices for data organisation, anonymisation, and documentation; essential prerequisites for more effective data sharing and reuse. The sessions are underpinned by the FAIR data principles.

The “Enhancing longitudinal data sharing: Data management strategies and best practicesworkshops will be delivered via two online half-day sessions, which are free to attend. Attendees have the flexibility to choose whatever combination of dates is best suited to their availability. However, it is essential to attend Day 1 first, as Day 2 builds on the learning from the initial session.

The Day 2 workshop will cover documenting and anonymising data, and best strategies for data sharing. Sessions are available at the following times:

Workshop materials will be provided to participants following completion of Day 2.
