RDM Training (Herts) Module 2: Getting Started

Goodger, Dr Joanna L

This module highlights research data management issues that should be addressed when starting a project: choosing file structures and naming conventions, file versioning, metadata and documentation, software choices, and the best practice for programming. Considering these details before data collection ensures that the data are well managed and organised, and require fewer transformations when preparing them for publication. Slides and training notes are included in this pack in one collection, but can be divided into five sections: filing systems, metadata, software, documentation, and coding.
