Online-Workshop Recherche nach Forschungsdaten

May 11th, 2023 | by

This entry is only available in German.

Ein neues Projekt baut auf dem aktuellen Stand der Forschung auf. Einen relevanten Beitrag dazu können bereits vorhandene Forschungsdaten – wie beispielsweise Messwerte aus anderen Versuchen, Materialkennwerte, bereits vorhandene Auswertungsskripte oder Umfrageergebnisse – liefern.

Viele Forschungsdaten sind frei zugänglich und können beispielsweise in der DataCite Suche recherchiert werden. Darüber hinaus gibt es aufwändig kuratierte Daten zu denen Sie durch eine Lizenz der Universitätsbibliothek Zugang haben. In diesem Workshop lernen Sie davon überblicksartig Datenbanken für Materialkennwerte (SpringerMaterials und Total Materia) und statistische Daten (Statista) kennen.

Voraussetzung für diesen Workshop ist die Teilnahme am Selbstlern-Kurs „Überblick zum Management von Forschungsdaten (FDM I-online)“ oder „Research Data Management – an Overview (RDM I – online)“

Der Online-Workshop Recherche nach Forschungsdaten (FDM II-modular) findet am 17.Mai 2023 von 10 bis 12:00 Uhr.
