Data Management News:
There is a new letter from the National Science Foundation regarding effective practices for data management. I have included the link below:
Research data management is the process of ensuring that your data is organized, accessible, clearly understood, and preserved for future access.
Data can be Excel spreadsheets, images, code, or any files that you use to complete your research.
Metadata is the information that defines what your data is about and what it describes. Good metadata is a part of good research data management. Someone who does not know your research personally should be able to understand what your data is describing because of the metadata that accompanies the data.
Good metadata is a love note to the future
Remember when you conduct your research, what if you come back to look at it in a year or two? Will you still understand what your data is about? Good metadata ensures that you or another researcher will be able to make sense of what your data describes, monitors, etc.
