23 Research Things – 15: Managing Research Data

Check out the Mantra course- are there any takeaway messages from this site?

I liked the Mantra course, found it quite helpful. I’m someone that’s all about good file management, naming conventions, etc. This course proves that it really is important (not just for neat freaks). You might need to justify your research years later so you need to have documentation that you can easily dig up. In an environment with a big focus on repositories and open access it’s also important to make your research make sense to others who download your data.
