The week of Halloween is the week when scary things happen, when horror stories take place, when horror stories are told. This includes our academic horror stories, which we fear, but do not often talk about. Pity, because these stories can teach us a lot about responsible research practices, and, specifically, good data management.
We - the RDM Support team of the UB - invite you to take part in the Data Horror Week that we organize 26-30 October!
Would you like to join us? There are several ways to take part:
• On this page, read the creepy stories around data management and the positive lessons learned
• Share your own (anonymous) story with the VU community through this form. Your story will appear on this page.
• Come to the online Data Conversations meeting on October 28th, 13:00-14:00
• Play along with the online Data Horror Escape Room on October 29th, 15:30 - 17:00
You don’t need any prior knowledge to join any of these events, but a sense of humor, a mindful attitude, and anything to ward off ghosts are required.
We look forward to celebrating the Data Horror Week together with you!
On behalf of the RDM Support team, Elisa Rodenburg and Lena Karvovskaya.
