The tabs to the left will walk you through the foundational aspects necessary for adopting data management practices, but below are some quick tips. The best practice when starting to practice data management is to have a plan of action and create a habit. If these recommendations seem like too much, try to adopt one new good habit every month.
This workshop recording will teach the foundational principles of good research data management. If you struggle with file naming, understanding your files after time has passed, or planning your research process, give it a listen!
Learners will be able to diagram a data lifecycle of their research process, learn how to develop a file naming process, and learn how to construct documentation for their research. This session is suited for graduate students and faculty conducting research, though advanced undergraduates will also find it helpful. Lesson materials are publicly available for download and viewing.
