Please join us January 12, 2015 for a Data Curation Workshop led by instructors from the ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research) and brought to you by the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship and the Institute for Quantitative Theory & Methods. This one-day workshop will teach participants practical strategies for data curation and management — how to plan for, review, assess, and clean data, including confidential and restricted data.  Heavy emphasis will be on exercises, discussion, and showcasing what existing data repositories do. Participants will leave with knowledge about archiving data to comply with federal funding agency mandates and requirements from journals and publishers.

No prior data experience is required. Participants are encouraged to bring their data for deposit in openICPSR or another data repository.

Please see the workshop site for more information and to register your interest in attending. Confirmation of your spot in the session will be sent by Friday, December 19, 2014.

Any questions about the workshop should be directed to Jennifer Doty, Research Data Librarian at jennifer [dot] doty [at] emory [dot] edu.
