Research data has received much focus in recent years. Making data openly available has become more and more common, resulting in new possibilities to build upon existing research. However, this may be a challenge if you do not know how to search and cite relevant data. Similar to performing a thorough literature search at different stages of a research project, you should also learn how to explore existing research data. This way, you avoid collecting and processing the same data multiple times. At the same time, you can evaluate the need for new data, and whether there are norms and standards when it comes to structuring, labelling, documenting (metadata) and citing your research data.
In this course, you will learn how to search in different data archives and search engines. You will also learn how to cite data when using them in your own publications.
