Love Data Week 2022

Feb 14-18, 2022 – Data is for everyone!

Love Data Week is a five-day, international event involving libraries, data centers, social media, and research institutions. This week is designed to highlight key resources available to ASU researchers. It is also a time to focus on best practices for managing, protecting, preserving and publishing your data. The Research Data Management teams at Knowledge Enterprise and the Library will share resource information, tips for data management, and activities designed to help you ensure your data feels loved!

All’s F.A.I.R. in love and data!

In 2016, the ‘FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship’ were first published in Scientific Data. These guidelines were designed to improve the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reuse of digital assets. These principles emphasize machine-actionability (i.e., the capacity of computational systems to find, access, interoperate, and reuse data with none or minimal human intervention). To find out more about the F.A.I.R. principles check out the .ASU Dataverse Research Data Repository and FAIR: Publishing for today’s and tomorrow’s researchers | ASU Library.
