You spent months on collecting samples and measurements in the field or in the lab? You explored, analyzed and interpreted this data and finally published your findings in a scientific journal? Well, then it is time to think about your data again and what to do with it now. Or are you just starting your PhD or your postdoc project and want to make sure not to overlook anything when it comes to obtaining and documenting your measurements?

According to the guidelines on good scientific practice your results should be traceable and repeatable. With respect to your data this means your data should be well documented and securely stored. In other words it should be prepared for later reuse. Are you aware that publishing your research data through a dedicated data journal or repository may help you on this and may get you an additional publication and further citations?

Data publishing and long-term preservation are just two aspects of research data management. This workshop shall help you in determining your data management requirements no matter at which stage of the project you are. It shall provide you with practical guidance how to organize, structure, describe and publish your data in order to comply with good scientific practice.

Target group: Doctoral Candidates and Postdocs from the Environmental and Earth Sciences (e.g. ecology, biology, geology, geography).
