Best Practices in Data Management and the Research Life Cycle Seminar

Wednesday, February 8th
KL 260

This presentation provides best practices and resources about data management for researchers in all phases of the research life cycle: project planning and writing, project start up, data collection, data analysis, data sharing, end of project, data archiving, and data discovery. It covers the basics of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant requirements, using Excel for data collection, how to cite data, and where to store it.

Susan Borda is a MS Library and Information Science candidate at Syracuse University and eScience Fellow. Her professional background is in IT infrastructure and technical support in higher education. Ms. Borda has developed a process for providing researchers with customized data management recommendations to researchers using information from the initial data interview.
