During Data Cleaning Day researchers are urged to go through their data files and storages:

  • Name files wisely.
  • Destroy unnecessary data.

Help in the above-mentioned issues can be found in the Guide for data documentation. Additionally, more cleaning tips has been gathered on the UH Wiki page How to organize data cleaning?

All participants are involved in the prize draw for movie tickets. Furthermore, the best effort and the biggest amount of free space created by cleaning will be awarded!
