§ Best Practices for Managing Your Data  (February 26)

This workshop is targeted to graduate students who are generating data for their own research.  The session discusses methods to organize, describe, backup, and archive your research data in order to ensure its future usability and accessibility.  Developing good habits for handling your data from the start will save time and frustration later, and increase the ultimate impact of your research.

§ Data Management Plans, Data Sharing and Archiving (March 5)

This workshop is targeted to researchers who need to write data management plans (DMPs) and share their data as part of their grant application, research and publication process.  It reviews DMP guidelines, checklist, and general advice, along with options for sharing and permanently archiving research data.

§ Reproducible Research (March 12)

The workshop is targeted to any interested faculty and students who are interested in learning about the growing interest in making the products of research accessible and usable by others in order to verify, replicate, and extend research findings.  It reviews how to plan research, to create publications, code, and data in open, reusable formats, and maximize the impact of shared research findings.
