UC Love Data Week – Day 4
February 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
UC Love Data Week is a week-long offering of presentations and workshops focused on data access, management, security, sharing, and preservation. All members of the University of California community are welcome to attend. Make sure to register with your UC-campus email.
BASIC STATISTICS IN R (PART 1) @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Speakers: Wesley Brooks (UC Davis)
This 2-part workshop explores basic, practical applied statistics using the R statistical programming language. On the first day we’ll focus on common procedures like assessing the distribution of your data and calculating differences between groups. In the second day we’ll focus on common linear models (linear regression, ANOVA, etc.) in R. We will also calculate the power of a simple study. This workshop is appropriate for learners with various data types, but will most emphasize continuous numerical data. Prior experience with R and RStudio required.
HACKY HOURS: DROP IN AND TALK ABOUT CODE @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Host: Kat Koziar (UC Riverside)
Take your computer coding to the next level. Whether you are a novice interested in learning to code or an experienced programmer comfortable with many languages and platforms, this is the place for you to learn from and share with others. Come talk with us about a variety of coding languages and topics, data management, data cleaning, data visualization, and data science methodologies.
GETTING STARTED WITH LASTPASS/VERACRYPT @ 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Join members of UC Berkeley Information Security Office and Research IT in this one-hour session to learn more about password managers, specifically LastPass Premium, and free tools to use in encrypting your devices.
NEW NIH POLICY FOR DATA MANAGEMENT AND SHARING – GET THE SCOOP! @ 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Speakers: Maria Praetzellis (California Digital Library) – Ariel Deardorff (UC San Francisco)
In late 2020 the NIH announced their new Policy for Data Management and Sharing. Starting in 2023, this policy will require all NIH researchers to prospectively plan for how their scientific data will be preserved and shared through submission of a Data Management and Sharing Plan. While they might not be required by the NIH for two years, we encourage researchers to start writing data management plans now as they are a useful tool for planning and tracking research data.This session will give an overview of data management plans (DMPs), dive deep into the new NIH requirements, and share local resources and tools like DMPTool.
HARVESTING TWITTER DATA WITH TWARC AND BEST PRACTICES FOR SOCIAL MEDIA RESEARCH @ 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Speakers: Torin White (UC Santa Barbara) – Jon Jablonski (UC Santa Barbara)
twarc is a command line tool and Python library for gathering and working with Twitter JSON data via the public Twitter API. Emerging from the Black Lives Matter and Document the Now movements, twarc comes along with a loose set of community standards that respect the autonomy of the user and aligns with the EU’s GDPR and Twitter’s terms of service. As part of supporting social media research, the UCSB Library Collaboratory will get you started with what you need to use twarc and present current ethical best practices that we use to orient researchers to social media research.
