Free hands-on workshop on data documentation in psychology

The Leibniz Institute for Psychology is excited to announce a free hands-on workshop on data documentation in psychology. It will take place virtually either on the 18th or on the 19th of November. The online event for researchers in psychology and related fields at all stages in their career will be held in Zoom.

Documenting research data as an essential practice in resilient open psychological science. Hands-on workshop to be held virtually on two alternative days. Participate either on Nov 18th or on Nov 19th, 2021 (15 - 18 h CET, 9 - 12 h, EDT)

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend a workshop to train those interested in research data management in psychology. The workshop aims to build up each participant’s overall understanding of this important area of responsible research practices.

The workshop will focus on the documentation of research data as an essential practice in resilient open psychological science. We will present preliminary empirical results on the documentation requirements for data re-use in psychology and a web-based tool called DataWiz which will support the documentation process accordingly. In a hands-on practice session you can become familiar with the free tool. It is the aim of the organisers that each participant will be able to successfully carry out data documentation in psychological science.

The workshop will use digital videoconferencing techniques and each participant will be encouraged to participate from the basis of his or her own experience and insights. We hope that each participant will bring with them a dataset for the practice session. Use the opportunity for open science skills development and collaborate and connect with others regardless of physical location.

We would appreciate it if you would notify us as soon as possible as to whether you will be able to attend this free workshop. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please check the workshop website for further details:
