Managing Research Data: Best Practices for Reproducible Research from Project Inception Through Publication
The effective management of research data is a challenge for researchers in all fields of study. New tools and technologies are making increasingly vast volumes of information available to investigators. Federal funding agencies now require that proposals contain data management plans. A growing number of scientific journals now expect that research data will be made publicly available before publishing scientific works.
What are some best practices for managing research data, and how do you approach data management plans and publishing data? Stevan Earl will be discussing these and related issues, in this College of Integrative Sciences and Arts Science and Mathematics Colloquium at ASU Polytechnic campus on Oct. 31 at 3 p.m. in Student Union, Cooley Ballroom B.
Earl is information manager with the Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research Project in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, and an instructor in the School of Sustainability.
