Training of trainers on Data Management and Sharing for the Social Sciences

Data Services Librarian at AUB Libraries, Ms. Dalal Rahme, co-led a three-day workshop, “Training of Trainers" on Data Management and Sharing on August 28-30, 2022. The workshop was co-organized with the Arabic Council for Social Sciences (ACSS) and the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Ms. Rahme elaborated on the different strategies followed to deliver successful Data Management workshops and assisted the participants with preparing their own materials for such trainings. According to Rahme, it was rewarding to work with social researchers from different institutions of the Arab world. Participants shared their stories, and voiced their concerns and challenges with respect to bringing awareness to research data literacy related issues.

Rahme stressed on the importance of Research Data Management (RDM) for both the researchers and the research field. To Rahme, RDM increases the visibility of the researcher, it creates new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations; it promotes research transparency and allows its reproducibility among other benefits.

Rahme concluded that RDM should be taken seriously and that policies should be set up, to facilitate the establishment of good infrastructures that will support researchers in managing and sharing their data.
