What does Research Data Management mean in everyday practice? In this series of interviews by RDM Support, researchers share their experiences on various aspects of research data management. In this interview, Isaura Wayop about the help she got from the RDM data consultants.
“To decrease the use of antibiotics for cows, sheep and other cattle, veterinary guidelines have been formulated. I am researching the implementation of these guidelines. For that I interview veterinary surgeons. I save the data from these interviews. It is privacy-sensitive information, so it needs to be stored safely. But how? Also, I had to submit a data management plan for the grant application. For these things I needed help. And that is how I came into contact with Research Data Management Support.
Isaura Wayop of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine tells about her research. “The guidelines for the use of antibiotics are not always very clear. By means of this research we want to find out why this is so and how, based on the information vets are giving us, we can improve the guidelines. That is why I talk with them."
