If you work on an NIH funded study that involves biomedical or behavioral variables, you should be paying attention to the new requirements about clinical trials.Read More Managing the new NIH requirements for clinical trials
We’re all talking about reproducibility, but what are we actually talking about?
Well… it’s complicated.Read More What We Talk About When We Talk About Reproducibility
The Dash team has now added a second way to login and submit. In addition to using Single Sign-On, users now have the ability to login with ORCiD. This means that not only can you authenticate with ORCiD, but once you have logged in this way, your ORCiD ID will connect to your Dash account. […]Read More Dash Enables ORCiD Login
This post has been crossposted on Medium We all know that research data should be archived and shared. That’s why Dash was created, a Data Publishing platform free to UC researchers. Dash complies with journal and funder requirements, follows best practices, and is easy to use. In addition, new features are continuously being developed to better integrate with […]Read More Dash: The Data Publication Tool for Researchers
Why two neuroscientists turned librarians are investigating data management practices in fMRI research.Read More From Brain Blobs to Research Data Management
Back in May, almost 30 librarians, researchers, and faculty members got together in Portland Oregon to learn how to teach lessons from Software, Data, and Library Carpentry. After spending two days learning the ins and outs of Carpentry pedagogy and live coding, we all returned to our home institutions, as part of the burgeoning Library […]Read More Building a Community: Three months of Library Carpentry.
It has been a little while since I last wrote about the work we’re doing to develop a research data management (RDM) guide for researchers. Since then, we’ve thought a lot about the goals of this project and settled on a concrete plan for building out our materials. Because we will soon be proactively seeking feedback on the different elements of this project, I wanted to provide an update on what we’re doing and why.Read More Building an RDM Guide for Researchers – An (Overdue) Update
What’s Dash? What’s Merritt? What’s the difference? After numerous questions about where things should go and what the differences are between our UC3 services, we got the hint that we are not communicating clearly. Clearing things up A group of us sat down and talked through different use cases and what wording we were using […]Read More Disambiguating Dash and Merritt
As a person who worked for years in psychology and neuroscience laboratories before coming to work in academic libraries, I have particularly strong feelings about ambiguous definitions. One of my favorite anecdotes about my first year of graduate school involves watching two researchers argue about the definition of “attention” for several hours, multiple times a […]Read More Talking About Data: Lessons from Science Communication
That was a cloud pun! Following our release two weeks ago, the Dash team is thrilled to present our newest functionality: you may now upload files directly from Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive! Let’s get you publishing (and citing and getting credit for your data): Using the “upload from server” option, you may enter up […]Read More Cirrus-ly Convenient Uploading
