Skilling Up to Do Data

Colleagues may be interested in an output from the second DCC-RIN Research Data Management Forum: "Skilling Up to Do Data: Whose Role, Whose Responsibility, Whose Career?" which is published in the current edition of the International Journal of Digital Curation (http://www.ijdc.net)


What are the roles necessary to effective data management and what kinds of expertise are needed by the researchers and data specialists who are filling those roles? These questions were posed at a workshop of data creators and curators whose delegates challenged the DCC and RIN to identify the training needs and career opportunities for the broad cohort that finds itself working in data management – sometimes by design but more often by accident. This paper revisits previous investigations into the roles and responsibilities required by a "data workforce", presents a representative spectrum of informed opinion from the DCC Research Data Management Forum, and makes some recommendations for raising capability, capacity and status.

Best regards,

After reading Yakel's article on Digital curation* and nearly all of the studies that she looked at indicating that more education is needed in this field, I went looking for what is available. I applaud this attempt, however I must say that I think it is very broad and the field itself is lacking in certifications. Is that not something you came across in your research? Aside from the handful of institutions that offer degrees in the States, is there not an organization that provides a certification process or test? If not, do you know who would be best suited for such a task?

How can you help to the Research Data Management forum? Is it improving our knowledge about Data Skills?

If you need to do a research that can directly challenge the commonly known educational standards as well as propose new ideas you can use our writing service. It provides assistance to people who have to cover lots of inforation due to their young age lack practical experience in writing classification essays using http://papersmart.net/classification-essays.html on the only suggested theme for college. My own study will surely become a theoretical part of some study in future.
