One-credit, 6-week course on data management offered spring 2017

A 6-week special topics course for graduate students is being offered this spring:
NTRES 6600: Research Data Management Seminar

Data management is an important research skill, yet formal training is seldom available for graduate students As an outcome of this course, students will learn about best practices in data management, becoming better prepared to create data management plans required by funding agencies (such as NSF) and to satisfy requirements to archive data associated with publications.

Topics will include:
• Organizing data for efficient statistical and graphical analysis
• Developing metadata describing data content
• Best practices for sharing and archiving research data

The class will meet for the first time on Monday, January 30 from 4:40 – 6:00 p.m. in Fernow G01, with five weekly sessions to follow.

Instructors are Cliff Kraft (NTRES) and Erica Johns (Mann Library). See the attached flyer or contact Cliff ( for more information, including a copy of the course syllabus.
