23 (research data) things is a set of training materials exploring research data management. Each of the 23 things offers a variety of learning opportunities with activities at three levels of complexity:

* Getting started
* Learn more
* Challenge me

All resources used in the program are online and free to use and reuse under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licence. You could use all of them as a self-paced course, or choose components to integrate into your own course.

The 23 things are designed to build knowledge as the program progresses, so if you’re new to the world of research data management, we suggest you start with things 1-3 and then decide where you want to go from there.

These materials supported an international community-based training program delivered in 2016 by the Australian National Data Service.

This release migrates these materials to a GitHub repository for continued maintenance. Some updates were made to material that was outdated.

We welcome contributions and suggestions via GitHub Issue or Pull Request.
