Share Open Research Data Handbook Sprint

Event Details

The Open Research Data Handbook aims to provide an introduction to the processes, tools and other areas that researchers need to consider to make their research data openly available.

Join us for a book sprint to develop the current draft, and explore ways to remix it for different disciplines and contexts. In just over 24 hours we'll be creating an updated resource to help reseachers manage their data in the open, supporting better research and greater collaboration.

You should join us if you are:

  • A researcher interested in carrying out their work in more open ways
  • An experts on sharing research and research data
  • A writers or copy editor
  • A web developers or designer who could help present the handbook online
  • Anyone else interested in taking part in an intense and collaborative weekend of action to improve openness in scientific, social and humanities research


How it will work:
The main sprint will take place on Friday and Saturday. After initial discussions we’ll divide into small teams to focus on research, writing and editing for different chapters of the handbook, developing a range of content including How To guidance, stories of impact, collections of links and decision tools. We'll be drawing on all sorts of online resources, remixing great creative commons content, and writing new materials where they are needed.

We hope that one group will be able to explore at digital tools for better presenting the handbook online, including ways to easily tag content for different audiences and remix the guide for different contexts.
