North-West University eResearch InitiativeResearch Conversation Series: Research Archives and Data Repositories in South Africa and at NWU (Theme: Open Science & Research Data Management)


Several research groups have collected large data sets over time – often partially in hard copy and partially digitised. The datasets could be of national importance but may not be preserved with re-use and discoverability in mind. In this 2-hour conversation we introduced researchers to national initiatives looking at Data Preservation and also discuss new initiatives at the NWU.
