The importance of Research Data Management in the conduct of open and reproducible science is better understood and technically supported than ever, and many of the underlying principles apply as much to everyday activities of a single researcher as to large-scale, multi-center open data-sharing.
Data Management, Repositories & Search Engines

Keeping data and research materials organized across all phases of the research process is always a challenging process. To help the research community address these challenges, the Center for Open Science developed the Open Science Framework (OSF), a research tool that supports collaboration, data management, and transparency throughout the research lifecycle. The OSF provides avenues for researchers to design a study; collect, analyze, and store data; manage collaborators; and publish research materials. In this webinar, attendees will learn about the many features of the OSF and develop strategies for using the tool within the context of their own research projects. The discussion will be framed around how to best utilize the OSF while also implementing data management and open science best practices.
Speakers Kevin Read, MLIS, MAS is a health sciences librarian at the University of Saskatchewan. He has been providing data services in health sciences libraries for the past 8 years in both Canada and the U.S. He is the current Chair of the Portage Network’s Data Discovery Expert Group, and is in the process of conducting research on how Canadian-funded researchers describe and share their data.

In the past five years, researchers have seen a growing number of research data management (RDM) policies being implemented by funders, publishers, and institutions. One key element in meeting these requirements, particularly in terms of data discovery, is using metadata, which helps make research data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (the FAIR principles). This session discussed the secret life of your dataset metadata: the ways in which, for many years to come, it will work non-stop to foster the visibility, reach, and impact of your work. We explored how metadata will help your dataset travel through the global research infrastructure, and how data repositories and discovery services can use this (meta)data to help launch your dataset into the world.

The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal is a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.
In this video, Samir Das and Tristan Glatard give a short overview of the main features of the CONP Portal.
Sebastian Urchs provides a quick tour of some data repositories and how to download and manipulate data from them.
