This training enhances your file and folder naming strategies, introduces the use of metadata, and guides you in documenting research data to bolster reproducibility within your research group and in preparation for publication. We will explore the critical differences between data storage, backup, and archiving, and showcase the EPFL's solutions. Through examples and best practices, you will learn to prevent data loss and enable efficient data sharing and its long-term preservation.
At the end of this workshop, which will be held on Zoom only, you will be able to:
  • Distinguish between storage, back-up and archiving solutions;
  • Test your file naming convention against good practices.
While not mandatory, basic knowledge of Research Data Management is recommended: for an introductory training, please register for the workshop ABC of Research Data Management.
