2021-2022 CZ HUB DATA MANAGEMENT MINI WORKSHOPS AND DATA HELP SESSIONS

Join CZNet for a new webinar series on Data Management!

These workshops and data help sessions are intended primarily for the data managers associated with the CZ Net Thematic Cluster projects, but are open to anyone who is interested in the topics that will be presented. Topics will include best practices for data management, data sharing and publication, repository selection and use, and other topics as needed. Click on a workshop drop-down to view the slides from that week, and access all previous mini workshops here!

Mini Workshop Format: Each mini workshop will be held via Zoom and will consist of 15-45 minutes of presentation from members of the CZ Hub team followed by open discussion and question and answer. Mini workshops will be held every other week.

Data Help Session Format: These help sessions will be held during the weeks when Mini Workshops are not held. Help sessions will be held via Zoom and will be an opportunity for CZ Net data managers, students, and/or investigators to connect, ask questions about data management, and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team. Data Help Sessions can also be used to promote discussion about common/best practices, standards, or coordination across Thematic Clusters where the need for such discussions are identified by investigators and/or data managers.

Schedule: All sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 4:00 pm ET.

Join all sessions here!

Presenter: Jeff Horsburgh

Description: This session will be focused on making connections among data managers associated with the CZ Net Thematic Cluster projects and bringing them up to speed on guidance for submitting data to HydroShare, EarthChem, Zenodo, and other repositories. Some Thematic Clusters may be ready to get started with data submission, and others may still be in planning stages. This session will focus on some simple guidelines to coordinate submissions and is primarily for data managers from the Thematic Cluster projects, but is open to anyone who is interested.

Slides: Workshop1 Getting Started for CZ Net

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenter: Jeff Horsburgh

Description: This session will be focused on some simple and effective methods for managing and sharing scientific data. You might call this “Data Management 101” and will provide a primer for data managers, graduate students, and any other interested parties who will be thinking about assembling, describing, and sharing datasets produced by the CZ Net.

Slides: Workshop2 Effective Data Management

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenter: Jeff Horsburgh

Description: This session will focus on the capabilities of the HydroShare repository and functionality related to submitting, sharing, and publishing data and research products in HydroShare. We will discuss HydroShare’s resource data model, describing HydroShare resources with metadata, and some best practices for depositing data and research products in HydroShare. This session is for data managers and any others who will be interacting with, submitting data to, or using resources shared in HydroShare.

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenter: Kerstin Lehnert

Description: This session will focus on the capabilities of the EarthChem Library data repository and functionality for submitting, sharing, and publishing data and other digital content from geoscience research, including analytical data, data syntheses, models, etc. We will discuss what types of data you should submit to EarthChem, templates for data submission, and best practices for depositing data and other products in EarthChem. This session is for data managers and any others who will be interacting with, submitting data to, or using data from the EarthChem repository

Presenter: Kerstin Lehnert

Description: This session will focus on details related to registering physical samples with the System for Earth Sample Registration (SESAR) along with best practices for obtaining and using International Geosample Numbers (IGSNs). This session is for data managers, investigators, and students who will be creating/collecting physical samples from which analytical measurements will be made.

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenters: Jeff Horsburgh and Shannon Syrstad

Description: This session will focus on the capabilities of the Zenodo repository and functionality for submitting, sharing, and publishing data and research products in Zenodo. We will cover instances where you might choose to submit to the Zenodo repository along with best practices for depositing, describing, and publishing products in Zenodo. This session is for data managers and any others who will be interacting with, submitting data to, or using resources shared in Zenodo.

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenter: Jeff Horsburgh

Description: This session will focus on initial functionality and demonstration of the CZ Hub Data Submission Portal (DSP). The DSP is being built to facilitate coordinated and simplified submission of data/research products to multiple supported repositories, including HydroShare, Zenodo, and EarthChem. We will cover who should use the DSP and how it can be used to submit data produced by the CZ Net Thematic Cluster projects. We will demonstrate the functionality of the DSP and seek feedback from users to help us refine its capabilities. This session is for data managers, students, and investigators who will be users of the DSP to submit data and other research products for publication.

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenters: Jeff Horsburgh and Kerstin Lehnert

Description: Group and Community functionality in HydroShare, EarthChem, and Zenodo provides a convenient way to group resources submitted to these repositories, enhancing their Findability and Accessibility (the FA in FAIR). In this session we will describe Community/Group functionality and how it should be used by data managers to share and organize data/research products from each CZ Net Thematic Cluster project.

Format: Open Discussion

Description: Ask questions about data management and get one-on-one help with data management from members of the CZ Hub team.

Presenters: Jeff Horsburgh and Anthony Castronova

Description: In this session we will describe the process for linking datasets with publications that use them (and vice versa) using citations and related resources. We will also cover the HydroShare repository’s linked computational environments and capabilities for storing and launching executable code shared in HydroShare. This session is for data managers, students, and investigators who want to learn about mechanisms for enhancing the reproducibility of their scientific work.
