Love Your Data Week 2017 ~ Day 2: Documenting, Describing, Defining

#LYD17 Message of the Day: Good documentation tells people they can trust your data by enabling validation, replication, and reuse.

Love Your Data Week 2017 ~ Day 1: Know Your Data Quality

#LYD17 Message of the Day: Data quality is the degree to which data meets the purposes and requirements of its use. Depending on the uses, good quality data may refer to complete, accurate, credible, consistent, or “good enough” data.

Good data quality needs to be planned for and managed throughout the data lifecycle.  Poor quality data can lead to incorrect analysis, misleading findings, and compromise the integrity of your research.

The FAIR Guiding Principles

Why is good data management important?  According to a recent article in Nature by Wilkinson et al., it is “…the key conduit leading to knowledge discovery and innovation, and to subsequent data and knowledge integration and reuse by the community after the data publication process.”    Wilkinson and his co-authors proceed in their article to describe “...four foundational principles ~ Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability ~ that serve to guide data producers and publishers as they navigate arou
