This is the course website for the workshop "Personal Data Management: From an organised hard drive to an automated life" at University of Bayreuth.
Having a pragmatic and non-disturbing way of organizing your research data makes your life so much easier. It allows you to find things quicker, re-use things in other contexts with less waste of effort, and it even allows you to automate your workflows. In this workshop, we will discover ways of organizing your hard drive. We will take a critical look at typical research data collection processes and ways of storing and archiving your files. In the end, we will understand how all these aspects can be brought together to automate important and time-consuming aspects of researching and publishing. All in all, the covered topics will help you aquire a basis for data literacy that will come in handy even beyond your life as a researcher.
In this section, you will find materials, links, and downloadable slides.
