Workshop: Capturing Research Data Creation and Use

Date: 
Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - 09:00 to 16:30

CAPTURE reseach project invites researchers and practitioners interested in research data management and documentation to a full-day workshop in Uppsala on April 20, 2020 to discuss paradata and provenance, documentation of research data and research data creation and use in archaeology and beyond.

The workshop approaches the paradox that we might know a lot about research data in different domains but not that much about how it came into being from different perspectives relating to multi-disciplinary research on research data and documentation. Documenting the origins and different processes related to working with and using research data, and collecting and preserving provenance metadata and paradata alongside with metadata has proven to be a difficult task.

Archaeology and Archaeological Information in the Digital Society shows how the digitization of archaeological information, tools and workflows, and their interplay with both old and new non-digital practices throughout the archaeological information process, affect the outcomes of archaeological work, and in the end, our general understanding of the human past.

COST-ARKWORK is a network funded by the COST scheme that brings together the multidisciplinary work of researchers of archaeological practices in the field of archaeological knowledge production and use. The aim of the network is to make a major push forward in the current state-of-the-art in knowing how archaeological knowledge is produced, how it is used and how to maximise its positive impact in the society.

CApturing Paradata for documenTing data creation and Use for the REsearch of the future (CAPTURE) investigates what information about the creation and use of research data that is paradata) is needed and how to capture enough of that information to make the data reusable in the future.
