Effectively Managing and Sharing Research Data in Spreadsheets


About This Sessionspreadsheet

Regardless of discipline studied or methods used, it is likely that researchers use some sort of spreadsheet application (e.g. Excel) to investigate, manipulate, or share research data.  Though easy to exchange with other researchers, difficulties can arise when using other researchers’ spreadsheet data when sharing and preservation are not adequately considered.

Join Data Management Services for a free session on Effectively Managing and Sharing Research Data in Spreadsheets. During this one hour session we will cover spreadsheet practices that can a) increase the possibility research data contained in spreadsheets can be re-used by others (and you) in the future, and b) help to reduce the chance of error when using spreadsheets for data acquisition.


We have moved this training online and no longer schedule regular training on this topic. We still accept requests to run this training so if your lab group or department would like to request a training, please contact us.
