Best practices for data management

Stanford University Libraries created an introductory guide to Data Best Practices. This guide includes an overview of the basics of data management, including file naming, file formats, versioning, and creating metadata.

DataONE offers a comprehensive database of research data management best practices. The Best Practices Primer serves as a good introduction for those new to data management.

ICPSR (the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research) of which Drexel University is a member, provides a Guide to Social Science Data Preparation and Archiving, which includes details on preparing and archiving research data.
