A Theo Murphy Initiative (Australia)

Working in research today means working with data. Thus, early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) need a range of skills relating to research data science, including how to look after and use data that is core to their research.

This winter school was created to help EMCRs, who already had experience collecting and analysing data, take their data skills to the next level and become more effective using data for their research. 

The Australian Academy of Science, in association with CODATA and RDA, welcomed 14 EMCRs from various disciplines to participate in the Research Data Science Winter School in Brisbane on 12-15 June 2018.

About the Program

The program is based on the successful run regularly by the International Council for Science’s (CODATA) and the (RDA). The program is designed to teach and refresh all the basic concepts that programming depends on, and learn key considerations on working with data by engaging with experienced data scientists.

The Winter School featured the following sessions:

Partners

We would like to thank our partners for their support in making the Winter School a successful program.

The Theo Murphy Initiative (Initiative)

The supports activities which provide tangible benefits to Australia’s early- and mid-career researcher (EMCR) community, with the overall goal of furthering scientific discovery. Activities are managed by the Australian Academy of Science and funds are made available by the generous support of the Royal Society through the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund.

CODATA

is the Committee on Data of the International Council for Science (ICSU).  CODATA exists to promote global collaboration to improve the availability and usability of data for all areas of research.  It supports the principle that data produced by research and susceptible to be used for research should be as open as possible and as closed as necessary.

RDA

(RDA) enables data to be shared across barriers through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed of experts from around the world – from academia, industry and government. Participation in RDA is open to anyone who agrees to its guiding principles of openness, consensus, balance, harmonisation, with a community driven and non-profit approach.

Software Carpentry

is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to teaching basic computing skills to researchers to help them improve or speed up their research. This international collaboration has run hundreds of events for more than 34,000 researchers since 2012.

The Australian National Data Service

The is a partnership led by Monash University, working in collaboration with the Australian National University (ANU) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). It is funded by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). Its core purpose is to make Australia’s research data assets more valuable for researchers, research institutions and the nation.

Australasian Open Access Strategy Group

The works to: advocate, collaborate, raise awareness and lead and build capacity for open access to all the outputs of scholarship in Australia and New Zealand.

The University of Queensland

is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions. UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21, a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities, and a member of Universities Australia.
