Introduction to data /metadata management in nanosafety assessment workflows
A. Papadiamantis, E. Valsami Jones, I. Lynch - University of Birmingham, UK M. Himly, University of Salzburg, AT
18 Oct 2019

Data management is the implementation and application of processes, which allow the acquisition, storage, manipulation, and analysis of data during its lifecycle.

The scope here is:
- to implement data management in scientific research
- to promote data harmonisation through data curation
- to promote data comparability and continuity
- to advance informatics
- to enable translational research
- to facillitate data FAIRness

The principle of FAIR data is explained and the entire data lifecycle is elaborated in the webinar enabling a high quality standard through incorporation of comprehensive metadata.

A case study in collaboration with Duke University is presented visualizing the need and importance of metadata. Instances for materials used, which undergo continuous transformation by time and due to operator management, are defined in form of an instance map.

An experimental workflow involving use of Scinote Online Lab Notebooks is described.
