Why and how to document your work
When analysing data it can be easy to forget what you've done and why you did it. For example, you may remember that you removed the outliers but do you remember how many were removed, what effect removing them had, or why you chose the cut-off point that you used?

This can be a real problem for several reasons. What if you want to go back and make a small change in your analysis? What if you want to get your work into a publication that requires a detailed methods section? What if someone else wants to reproduce your research or apply your methods to a new dataset?

This free session will help you learn the importance of recording a proper workflow, will provide several options for how to record it, and help you develop the skills for making your research process clear to you and others.

The UK Data Service will only use the personal information you provide for this event, unless you tell us you wish us to use it for other purposes (such as keeping you up-to-date about our events or contacting you regarding feedback on our services), and will store that data for a maximum of 3 months after the event. After this period, we will retain only anonymised data for reporting purposes.
