What is 23 (research data) Things?

23 (research data) Things is self-directed learning for anybody who wants to know more about research data.

Do 23 (research data) Things

Anyone can do 23 (research data) Things at any time.  Do them all, do some, cherry-pick the Things you need or want to know about. Do them on your own, or get together a Group and share the learning.  The program is intended to be flexible, adaptable and fun!

Each of the 23 Things offers a variety of learning opportunities with activities at three levels of complexity: ‘Getting started’, ‘Learn more’ and ‘Challenge me’. All resources used in the program are online and free to use.

The 23 Things are designed to build knowledge as the program progresses, so if you’re new to the wonderful world of research data management, we suggest you start with Things 1-3 and then decide where you want to go from there. You might also like to join our Data Librarians Google Group so you can connect with others who share your interest in research data.

Adapt and repurpose 23 (research data) Things

Many people have told us they’d love to adapt the 23 (research data) Things program to run their own way, in their own organisation. Well you can!

All program resources and materials have been released under a Creative Commons license in our 23 (research data) Things re-purpose toolkit. You can:

    • adapt it for your situation
    • adopt it as suggested training for all staff
    • contextualise it for your discipline
    • extend or contract it to meet your specific research data knowledge needs.

See for example the Top 10 Health and Medical Things which explore issues surrounding management of research data, specifically for people working with medical, clinical and health data.

If you repurpose any of the 23 (research data) Things materials and are willing to share them, please let us know.

ANDS will continue to run workshops, webinars and events that build on the foundation laid by 23 (research data) Things.  Keep up to date with what’s happening by subscribing to ANDS News.
