DataONE is sponsoring a Data Management Short Course for junior researchers based on content from the DataONE education modules and the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) short course materials. The goal of the short course is to encourage data literacy in junior researchers, to pilot the DataONE and ESIP teaching materials in a short course environment and to gain feedback from students on course content. The course will cover all aspects of the data life cycle including data management planning; data collection; quality control and assurance; metadata and data description; data preservation; data discovery, integration and analysis; and publication and citation. The course will be taught by data management professionals and researchers from the Earth and environmental sciences.
