PRBB Record keeping and data management campaign 2016

Contents:

Keeping scrupulous records and taking the right decision when managing outliers is fundamental to good practice in science, but it’s one thing knowing it’s important, but quite another keeping our practice as squeaky clean as it should be.

In a survey of PRBB scientists, over 40% of the 521 people who replied, said they had sometimes or often noticed problems with record keeping in their immediate working environment.

This is not unusual – other scientists in other centres around the world report similar levels of this problem. But being the same as others in sloppy practice is no cause for pride.

Three special workshops will be held during the week of the 25th January to give you a chance to discuss specific challenges in keeping, handling and managing data in the best possible way:

- 26th Jan: Keeping the data record straight in the lab

- 27th Jan: In silico data tsunami: will you survive?

- 28th Jan: Managing data in human research

Look at the agenda of each workshop for the details.

Come to the workshops, take part in the discussions, clarify and stimulate your thinking, while you enjoy a pica-pica lunch. Register to have a place in the pica-pica and to enter in a prize draw and win a token to spend in books and music.
