Organising documents when collaborating on a History project

Professor Matthew Davies

Is there a difference in how you structure, edit, and maintain documents and folders when carrying out research as part of a collaborative team rather than on your own? Professor Matthew Davies from the Centre of Metropolitan History (Institute of Historical Research) gives his answer to this question.

Managing your Research online tutorial

These videos were created as part of the AHRC Collaborative Skills project History DMT (Data Management Training). The project sought to establish training for postgraduates and early career researchers in managing data. Three workshops were held across the country (Hull, Sheffield, and London) and an online research training course developed. The project was managed and developed by the Institute of Historical Research (School of Advanced Study, University of London), the Department of History at the University of Hull, and the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield.
