Data Management Guide for Citizen Scientists released

Monday, March 4, 2013

The Public Participation in Science Research working group today released their Data Management Guide designed specifically for citizen scientists.

The guide provides a step-by-step introduction to the data management lifecycle. It includes examples from citizen science projects and links to best practices and tools to help project organizers optimize the quality, usability and accessibility of their project data. Better data management makes data easier to find, use, analyse, share and reuse, and this guide helps explain the processes involved in data management.

The guide can be found here.
