To ensure that you understand your own data and to enable others to find, use and properly cite your data, it helps to add ‘documentation’ or ‘metadata’ (data about data) to the documents and datasets you create.
This virtual session will explore the critical role documentation plays in data management and how you can ensure good documentation throughout your research.
- Define metadata and common types of documentation
- Learn best practices for capturing and creating metadata
- Understand why documenting your research is important
- Find out who to contact for assistance
