14 February 2017
Throughout this week, ANDS is celebrating international Love Your Data Week 2017 (13-18 Feb).
Love Your Data (LYD) is a campaign to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services.
The theme for Day 2 is: Documenting, describing, defining.
Good documentation tells people they can trust your data by enabling validation, replication, and reuse.
In addition to the information on the Love Your Data website, ANDS is suggesting other daily activities and resources to help you 'Love Your Data'.
- Read the ANDS Curation continuum Guide to see how effective sharing and reuse of research datasets is built upon end-to-end data management processes.
- Data is only as valuable as the metadata which describes and connects it.
Go to today's activities and resources on the Love Your Data week website to discover:
- message of the day
