Research data is data that is collected, observed, or created, for purposes of analysis to produce original research results, but what does that really mean for your own work? Data librarian Mandy Gooch will define research data & data-related terms and discuss common data formats. You'll explore trustworthy repositories, access restrictions, and identify library and campus services and resources related to data.
This workshop is also offered to the GW community in real time via WebEx on Friday, February 24, 11:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Data Demystified is offered consecutively with Data Management.
This workshop is part of the Research Data Workshop Series for anyone who needs help collecting, managing, and visualizing research data. Other worships in this Spring 2017 series are Data Demystified, Data Management, Collecting Social Media Data with Social Feed Manager, Data Analysis at Your Fingertips: Using Google Sheets, and Intro to Stata. All sessions will be first-come, first served.
