Fall 2023 Research Data Management Seminar Series

Research Data Management (RDM) is essential for responsible research and planning should begin early. Effective data management can increase the pace of the research process, contribute to the soundness of research results, and meet funding agency requirements by making research data easy to share.

This in-person workshop will dive into recommended practices for managing research data including backup procedures, tips on effective file names, data documentation/metadata, and data sharing strategies.

This seminar is for faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students from all disciplines. This course does not focus on creating or using any particular data collection or analysis tool, but discusses data management at a general level, and provides resources to help you apply management practices efficiently.
