This Love Data Week, attend the Libraries' CTE workshop, Making Data Bearable
4-5pm, Feb. 12; Cone 2029 (S) / Solms 207 (A).
Issues related to the processes of research and publication can add undue anxiety to the already stressful roles of university faculty. Join a team of specialist librarians as we walk you through the intricacies of these complex topics, including research marketplace analysis, research data management, and identity management. Faculty are encouraged (not required) to bring their own data research examples or ideas. Together, we will develop a foundational knowledge of resources and services available to support all campus researchers.
iThenticate is a tool for faculty researchers to check their unpublished manuscripts for potential citation errors and similarity to published works (http://ithenticate.com). iThenticate compares submissions to published academic journal articles, books, law reviews, patents, dissertations, conference proceedings and other materials. Currently, iThenticate is used by the NIH, NSF, as well as other federal funders, and more than 1500 publishers in their manuscript review processes.
For more information, see the Office of Research's iThenticate training page OR contact the Liaison Librarian for your discipline for assistance.
Do you teach with data? If so, check out these Data-Driven Learning guides for the social sciences from ICPSR:
Use these guides to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. Topics are drawn from standard introductory-level social science textbooks. New guides are continually added and topic areas expanded. An Instructors Guide to DDLGs is also available.
