Wilson James

Senior Project Manager, Research Data Management, University of Oxford



Dr James A J Wilson, Senior Project Manager (Research Data Management), University of Oxford. In recent years James has been coordinating efforts to develop and integrate aspects of research data management (RDM) infrastructure at the University of Oxford. He was the project manager of a number of JISC-funded projects engaged in developing research data management support, researcher training, software to support ‘live’ data management, and the University’s recently-launched research data repository.

He is the Executive Officer of the University’s Research Data Management and Open Data Working Group, and is currently helping ensure that the University can comply with funder requirements, as well as managing Oxford’s ‘Online Research Database Service’ (ORDS). James’s academic background is in English literature, and he was involved in humanities computing projects before heeding the call of RDM.
