Organising your research data - HF

Learn about good practices for data entry and data integrity.

Are you struggling with keeping track of your research data files? Is your project directory a hot mess? And are you sure your files are in a format that is easy to exchange, share and archive?

In this module, you will learn about good practices for data entry and data integrity. You will learn about structuring project directories and which file formats are best suited for use during – and after a research project and what to keep in mind when you are converting data from one format into another. 

We will wrap up with a question and answer session where you will be able to ask us any questions you have about data organisation.
