Training & Tutorials


Three Research Data Management training workshops were organized by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in 2023. The training deck includes:
  • #1 Introduction to RDM and Open Research & Data Citation and licensing (video recording & materials)
  • #2 FAIR Principles and Data Selection and Preservation (video recording & materials)
  • #3 Research Ethics and Introduction to Data Management Plan (DMP) (video recording & materials)
  • Two sets of self-paced learning materials on RDM & DMP




  • Tools to create data management plans (DMP). Use one of their templates for compliance with a certain funder or institution, or create your own DMP with their guidance.
  • Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELN). Laboratory notebooks are the primary records many researchers use to document the hypotheses, methodology, results, and analysis of their research. Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) move these records into digital formats and add functionality such as collaboration, templates, and searching.
  • is a web-based platform designed for researchers to create, share, and discover scientific protocols. It provides a collaborative environment where researchers can create and publish detailed step-by-step procedures for their experiments and workflows. This platform is flexible and adaptable, allowing users to create protocols for a wide range of scientific fields and applications.
  • Sherpa JULIET is a useful tool offering information on research funders' policies on open access data archiving and open access publishing. Use Sherpa Juliet to find out whether your funder requires you to deposit your final data in a particular repository.
