Data Management

The library’s Data Science and Open Scholarship Team provides programming support for students, faculty, and staff. We offer consultations and teach general and curriculum-integrated classes to help UCSF researchers better organize and manage data for reproducibility. Topics covered include locating public datasets, organizing files, documenting data, and publishing research data to meet journal requirements.

Ariel gave a terrific presentation–it was fun, informative, and also had so much beneficial info for the grad students who are enrolled in the course. I wished I had known more about data management when I was a grad student!
