How can you organize, document and package up your research data so that you or another researcher can make easy use of your data in the future? Perhaps you are finishing a research project and want to make the associated data usable going forward. Or perhaps after using data from someone else’s project, you vow not to let others be as frustrated when using your data!
In either case this workshop is for you. This workshop gives researchers practical steps for preparing research data for re-use by themselves and others. Data Management Services will take researchers through several data preparation steps (e.g., data selection, organization, documentation, preservation), and introduce a spreadsheet tool that facilitates and documents those steps. Attendees can apply these steps for their own research project!
