University of Helsinki Data Support, a network of experts ranging from library staff to lawyers, helps researchers all year long via a service address firstname.lastname@example.org. To be able to develop services, Data Support investigated what are the most frequently asked topics in the service email by researchers. Along with data management plan commenting service, most questions asked by the researchers handled sensitive data management as well as storing solutions.
Data Cleaning Day is organized for the first time at University of Helsinki today, Thursday the 23rd of May. The idea of this day is that researchers would check the content of their data folders and the quality of their data management. We asked evolutionary biologist Jonna Kulmuni how does she keep her data in order.
Data Cleaning Day invites UH researchers to check their data management routines. Data Cleaning Day on 23th of May is now organised for the first time.
University of Helsinki’s DataSupport has published a guide for research data documentation. The guide introduces the basic elements of documentation and meets the needs of most researchers.
