UKRN (UK Reproducability Network) is offering a free data skills training workshop in Bristol on 28th November, supported by Cancer Research UK. It will give hands-on training in tools for reproducible data management, such as RMarkdown and Git, and is open to researchers at any career stage. At least 10 spots are open for participants from outside of Bristol, and travel bursaries are available. CRUK-funded researchers are especially encouraged to apply.
Further details and how to apply (deadline 26 Oct):
Join the Southampton UK Reproducibility Network Team for tea and cake at their fortnightly journal reading and seminar club!
Fortnightly in Building 32 10-11am with refreshments!
The hour long sessions are open to anybody interested in robust research practice, reproducibility, replication, and open science. In each session, we will discuss a paper relating to one of these themes (see table below for list of papers). We will also have guest speakers running seminars about reproducibility and open science practice.
What is Data Management?
Data management is about good research practice, it is an essential building block for good research. It should be part of your everyday processes.
Basic principles, such as file naming and version control, will help you locate and understand your data.
Data management will help you collate data that underpins your work in a way that allows it to be used with confidence, both now and in the future.
Ultimately, well managed data can add to the credit you receive and impact of your research alongside other research outputs.
