Research data for scientific re-use are special. Curating data for re-use is generally time- and labor-intensive, requiring an approach similar to that used by a museum curator caring for artifacts to clean, preserve, and document it for learners of today and in the future. This fast-paced session will describe the unique challenges of open research data for re-use, provide a non-technical explanation of research methods metadata, review a data curation infrastructure system, outline respondent confidentiality issues, and provide data curation professional training resources.
Speaker: Linda Detterman, Director, Marketing & Membership, Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
