2014 RDM 101 training kicks off
Thirteen IRRI staff were participants in the recently held Research Data Management (RDM) 101 course—the first batch for 2014.
RDM 101 is regularly offered by IRRI’s Risk Management and Quality Assurance unit and covers data management planning; data collection, validation, and checking; data transformation and retrieval; back-up; and archiving and sharing, with emphasis on documentation and metadata.
Menchu Bernardo, RMQA senior manager, also discussed IRRI’s current IT infrastructure that staff and scholars can use to help them manage their data more efficiently.
IRRI Dataverse, developed by IQSS at Harvard University as a cloud-based research data repository, was as introduced as tool for use in archiving and sharing the Institute's research findings.
The next RDM 101 training is scheduled on 20-22 May 2014. Interested parties can contact Deacart Arreza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
