PhD+ Data Literacy: Managing Your Research Data

As researchers and scholars, we deal with data every day. Whether you’re getting started on a new project, or swamped by data you’ve collected, you may find yourself wishing that you had better data management habits. PhD Plus is working with colleagues from UVA Health Sciences Library to offer this new session to help you stay on top of your research data.

This 90-minute session will make your life easier by helping you adopt good data practices now. Using real-life examples, this 90-minute interactive workshop will cover:

  • Recommended approaches to data organization, versioning, documentation, and storage
  • “Tidy data” practices to enable efficient data entry, preparation, and analysis 
  • UVA research data support services and resources

This preliminary session of the PhD Plus Data Literacy series will provide a foundation in research data management and prepare you for additional Data Literacy series in Python (Fall 2021) and R (Spring 2022). We encourage PhD students and Postdocs of all disciplinary backgrounds to take advantage of this offering.
