No previous knowledge is required for this module. The chapters build on each other thematically, but can also be worked through individually. If information from other chapters is needed, they are linked.
Target audience
Students at PhD-level and beyond and researchers in the field of biology and environmental sciences, especially those working with biodiversity data, who are looking for a first introduction to research data management.
Learning objectives
After completing this unit you will be able to understand the content and purpose of research data management and apply it in the field of biology. The detailed learning objectives are given at the beginning of each chapter.
If you prefer to read, you can access the content of this unit through the text only. However, the interspersed videos offer further access to the topic, so those who work well with video explanations will find the content presented here in a different way.
If you concentrate on reading all the texts, you can expect to spend about 4-5 hours on the unit. If you also watch the videos or follow the links, you will need more time. And remember to take breaks. The approximate length of each chapter is given in the table of contents.
