Project summary:

History DMT (Data Management Training and Guidance) seeks to integrate best practice, good principles, and skills of research data management within the postgraduate curriculum and among early career historians through a series of specialist workshops at London, Hull, and Sheffield and through the development of a free online training course dedicated to the research data types that historians are most likely to come across in their research. Various pathways will enable a hands-on approach to research data management that covers the many types of data which historians generate, as well as the means with which to share that data. Drawing on existing material created by previous projects, as well as developing substantial new content, History DMT will form part of a wider collection of History focused research training material designed for national postgraduate and early career training.
