CITL Workshop- Research Data Management

Date & Time: Tuesday, October 25, 2:10 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: CITL Classroom (EWFM 379)
Presenters: Brian Simboli & Phillip Hewitt

Researchers should develop long-range plans for sustainable forms of data storage. Doing so can be difficult for multiple reasons, including the need for collaborative data sharing, data security issues, and decisions about if and how to make data accessible to the public, and other complexities. We will discuss the data cycle, data storage options, data management plans, electronic lab notebooks, and the value of making data openly accessible. This will enable you to facilitate compliance with funding agencies avoid the need to later reformat or migrate data to another storage option plan for project accounting purposes, when storage options require a fee. Attendees can email, prior to the seminar, specific questions they have or any additional topics they would like to see covered.To do so, use the following email and reference this LTS seminar: . Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops in order to complete some items during the session. [register]
