Regardless of discipline studied or methods used, it is likely that researchers use some sort of spreadsheet application (e.g. Excel, GoogleSheets) to investigate, manipulate, or share research data. Though spreadsheets are easy to exchange with other researchers, difficulties can arise if sharing and preservation are not adequately considered. Join JHU Data Management Services for our online training course, “Effectively Managing and Sharing Research Data in Spreadsheets”. We will cover spreadsheet practices that can:
- Increase the possibility research data contained in spreadsheets can be re-used by others (and you) in the future, and
- Help to reduce the chance of error when using spreadsheets for data acquisition.
