Online Short-Seminar: What's in a README?

Online Short-Seminar: What's in a README? Online

To ensure that you understand your own data and to enable others to find, use and properly cite your data, it helps to create README files with ‘documentation’ or ‘metadata’ about the datasets you create.

This session will explore the critical role documentation plays in data management and how you can ensure good documentation throughout your research.

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to describe a README file to someone else
  • Understand how README files can be helpful 
  • Write your own README file
  • Start talking with others about implementing in group projects
  • Receive resources and contacts for future help

Guest Instructor: John Obrycki, PhD, Research Data Manager, Boston Children's Hospital
