DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Social Scientists
Social scientists work with lots of data in their research, be it qualitative or quantitative, primary or secondary. This workshop will introduce data management practices for social scientists to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a social sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. While good general data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the social sciences are the intended audience for this workshop.
