Upcoming Workshops

  • “Data publication training”. 24 – 25 May 2018, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Blacksburg, VA.

Data publication facilitates open science, collaboration, and introduces new sources of data for scientific synthesis. These benefits are recognized by several research journals and funding sources, which now require data publication from researchers in the environmental sciences who may be unfamiliar with this process. To help the research lab of Cayelan Carey realize these benefits and meet these expectations, the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) will provide a 2 day training workshop.

The goal of our workshop is to enhance research projects’ efficiency in archiving their data packages in accordance with the standards developed by the ecological research community. For more information see here.

EDI will celebrate the opening of the Information Management Code Registry with a hackathon.  All coders and wannabe coders who have at least some experience with R or Python and an interest in writing new code or contributing existing code to the Registry are invited to contact us.
