To help spread awareness of good data-keeping practices, we’re thrilled to be an official participant of Love Your Data Week (February 13-17, 2017), an annual international event created to foster conversation and build awareness for quality research data management. This week we’ll be discussing all things data, from tips and insights to announcements of upcoming free webinars. We’re also running a twitter contest this week that you won’t want to miss!
Has the contest set your heart atwitter? Then you’ll love what’s next. As a taste of what’s to come this week, we’ve combed through the archives to share some blog posts that may help you understand and love your data more deeply.
