Session 2: Hands-on Data Management Consultations

Registration is required* and space is limited. Participants will receive a $50 gift card.

Participants will be asked to bring a yet-to-be published data set and/or publication.  The session will include:

  • A data review to determine which aspects of the data require standardized descriptions for reporting and reproducibility.
  • Analysis of available data repositories and the creation of a deposit plan.
  • Information management strategy, including how to reference key aspects of the data or research context, version control, and linking methods and conclusions to the appropriate data.
