Love Data Week, February 13-17, is the international celebration of data, and is a week dedicated to spreading awareness of the importance of research data management and sharing and preserving data. Celebrate Love Data Week by attending sessions on LabArchives and NIH Data Management.
Introduction to LabArchives ELN for Research (February 15 and 16)
Learn the benefits that LabArchives offers researchers and how it can easily be integrated into your research data management toolkit. Topics covered include:
- Notebook structure
- Audit trail, revisions history, and version control
- Access controls
- Page signing and witnessing
- Creating templates and copying content
- Collaborating internally and externally
Session 1: Wednesday, February 15, 10am
Session 2: Thursday, February 16, 1pm
Best Practices and Tips for Establishing Your Notebook’s Structure (February 13 and 17)
The LabArchives Research Notebook begins as a blank slate that is meant to be flexible so that you can customize the structure to complement current workflows. Join this session for a closer look at how you can use our built-in layouts or set up a notebook using other popular structures including: project and grant-based, individual researcher-based notebooks, date-based, or team and company notebooks to manage shared materials for reference purposes.
Session 2: Friday, February 17, 10am
Creating Templates to Standardize the Collection and Management of Data (February 15 and 16)
We recommend using templates in LabArchives to create a consistent entry format for documenting and tracking information. Templates can be made from reusable pages or entries that can easily and quickly be copied to help save time. Once created, this form can be reused by all members of the notebook to provide consistency and a clear list of data requirements. Join this session to see examples of templates, how you can create your own, and reuse them.
Session 1: Wednesday, February 15, 3pm
Session 2: Thursday, February 16, 11am
Creating a Data Management and Sharing Plan For Your Research (February 14)
This workshop, led by Scott librarians Larissa Gordon and Anita Lai, and Jessica Gutierrez, Associate Director of Research Conduct & Compliance, provides faculty with resources and advice about creating data management plans for research data using the 2016 FAIR Guiding Principles for Scientific Data Management and Stewardship. These plans will be required for NIH grants starting in the new year, but data management is also valuable for every researcher to consider. It can help to preserve your data, make your research more visible, and also aids in the advancement of the scientific community by allowing other researchers to access your data. Special attention will be paid to how Jeffersonians can use LabArchives as an openly accessible data repository.
