In an era that confronts us with an overwhelming capacity to collect data, knowing how to manage data is essential. Not only does the National Science Foundation (NSF) require a data management plan with all grant applications, growing numbers of funders and publishers have data sharing requirements. Data management is equally important for the individual researcher trying to document, organize and evaluate empirical information. In this course, we will discuss best practices for organizing data for efficient statistical and graphical analysis, developing science metadata, and sharing and archiving research data.
