Data Management for Social Sciences
Research data management education strives to provide guidance on how researchers can effectively manage their data to increase the scholarly impact from their research. However, guidelines for data management may vary significantly across domain areas. Researchers in the social sciences engage with many forms of data, including surveys, ethnographic data, census data, and statistical data, all with their own considerations for how to effectively manage them. This workshop will provide data management tips and tips specifically aimed at social scientists from all levels (students, staff, and faculty), including how to clean data, develop file-naming schemes, and store your data securely.
As we will be exploring several online tools and resources which aid in data management, it will be helpful (but not required) for participants to bring a laptop to the workshop if one is available to them.
