The BIH QUEST Center, in cooperation with the Medical Library of the Charité, is offering a workshop on open data, in the English language.
The workshop is suitable for both scientists and students at the Charité and the BIH.
This three-hour workshop provides an overview of the free availability of data (open data) and includes practical exercises on the PC.
The workshop will answer the following questions:
- What is open data and why is it important to share data?
- How do I choose a suitable repository for archiving?
- How do I ensure that my data is easy to find and accessible?
- How do I ensure that my data are also re-usable in the long term?
- How can I consider privacy aspects?
- How do I search for useful data sets and how do I quote them?
