About the Session

3 in 1!

  • Research projects don't have to be a lonely process. Frequently many different researchers work together towards generating new knowledge. Getting data to be used by everyone and making sure it stays original and current is a challenge. We look at Open Science Framework, a tool that helps people work together and make sure their data stays fresh.
  • Doing analysis on data is one of the key steps in a research cycle, and there are plenty of tools that can help researchers understand and showcase their discoveries. Data Visualization and Analysis can go in many different directions but each one needs to work with tidy data as a starting point. We look at tidy data across different disciplines and the ways in which to showcase them.
  • Data becomes more valuable once it is shared, allowing others to use it to glean information and build knowledge. In today's academic landscape researchers can get credit for the data they produce, leading to new opportunities for study. But to be shared, data must be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. We look at what this means and go through UCT's data repository ZivaHub and how to use it to share your data.
