In this course you will learn about the diversity of data and the best practices that should be followed throughout the research data lifecycle to ensure that data are collected, organized, described, licensed, cited, preserved, shared, stored and reused ethically. We will discuss data governance, data privacy, data quality and data security among other topics. By the end of the course, you will be able to identify the components of a good data management plan, which will help you establish policies and appropriate infrastructures to support your institution in managing, sharing and reusing research data efficiently.
