Data Science & Management Workshop

New digital technology has led to exponential growth in the amount and complexity of data, from text to images to numerical data. This poses an incredible opportunity to push the envelope within and across scientific, engineering and social fields. In this workshop we will highlight best practices for data management, data science research, and training and services at UC Davis. We will showcase examples of how students from across the university can interact with the Data Science Initiative and the Library's Data and Digital Scholarship department at all stages of their careers to achieve their research goals and build transferrable skillsets for life after graduate school. This workshop is free and is held in conjunction with the UC Davis Graduate Student Orientation (grad.ucdavis.edu…). Incoming graduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend.

EndNote is a bibliographic management program which simplifies the process of generating bibliographies and reference lists. EndNote allows one to easily store, manage, and format references to any biological/agricultural/environmental science core style guide such as CSE, NLM, ACS, or APA or to any specific biological/agricultural/environmental journal style such as FASEB J, J Exp Biol, Plant Cell, J Agr Food Chem, or Front Ecol Environ. EndNote also helps you organize and easily retrieve publication PDFs.

This introductory class will cover: creating EndNote libraries; direct export of citations from biological/agricultural/environmental article databases; adding PDFs to your EndNote Library; output styles; and Cite While You Write (using EndNote with Microsoft Word).

Please register for a seat.
