Research Data Management 101 (RDM 101), an openly available self-learning course!

Get started with Module 1


This Jupyter book was created to make the content of the TU Delft course for PhD candidates, Research Data Management 101 (RDM 101) openly available and as a self-learning course.

The RDM 101 course is aimed at PhD candidates at TU Delft (especially in their first year) who require a hands-on introduction to Research Data Management (RDM) and Data Management Plans (DMPs). However, the course can also be useful for researchers and students interested in learning the basics of RDM at their own pace.

RDM 101 is structured in five successive modules that can be completed at your own pace. Each module contains informative videos and self-assessment quizzes to reinforce the knowledge acquired on certain topics. This self-learning course also includes suggested exercises to apply what you will be learning throughout the content.

Important note for PhD candidates at TU Delft

It is important to note that no credits or certificates will be awarded upon completion of this course under this format. TU Delft PhD candidates who are interested in obtaining the credits need to register via CoachView, which is the course registration application of the Graduate School Doctoral Education (GS DE) programme. The course offered in the GS DE programme also includes 3 class sessions (on-site or online) and discussion groups, which makes for a richer learning experience. However, in this Jupyter book you will find all the contents of the course necessary to get acquainted with good research data management and the tools you use for this purpose.
