DVS Workshop: Research Data Management 201: Preparing Your Data for Publishing

Thu, 2019-11-14 18:30
Thu, Nov 14, 2019
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or "published" within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the Data Management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for "curating" a dataset for formal sharing. Participants will identify common data issues, determine recommendations to optimize the dataset, generate metadata and documentation, and consider how these practices might be applied to their own research. Participants are not required to have taken a Data Management 101 course (although it is recommended). Please bring a laptop to participate fully in the workshop.

DVS Workshop: Managing Sensitive Data

In the course of your research you may collect, interact with or analyze data that are classified as "Sensitive" or "Restricted" according to Duke's data classification standard. In this workshop we will examine common sensitive data types, how Duke's IRB and Information Technology Security Office (ITSO) expects you to protect that data throughout your project's lifecycle and the resources available to you for sensitive data storage and analysis. We will also discuss data de-identification methods and resources, and where data with access restrictions can be archived to comply with data sharing mandates from funders and journal publishers.

DVS Workshop: Research Data Management 101 + Tool Demonstrations

Thu, 2019-10-31 17:30
Thu, Oct 31, 2019
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Researchers work with lots of data both big and small, in many different formats and across various digital systems. The first hour of this workshop will introduce good digital data management practices and how they can be practically applied throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices cover pre-project planning, active workflow organization, documentation, storage and backup strategies, and optimizing your final "data package" to fulfill research quality and reproducibility requirements and facilitate and new research. The second hour of this workshop will offer a mini "tour" of research data management tools including GitHub, LabArchives, and Tropy. Participants will be able to attend two of these demonstrations in the time allotted. We will end with a share out about what you've learned and how you might apply the tool to your own work. Laptops recommended.
