Data and Visualization Workshop Series

Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or "published" within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the data management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for "curating" a dataset for formal sharing. Participants will identify common data issues, determine recommendations to optimize the dataset, generate metadata and documentation, and consider how these practices might be applied to their own research.
