Science requires evidence behind an assertion. As William Deming said,
“without data, you’re just another person with an opinion.” So the argument
in a research article must have some sort of evidence, i.e. data, behind
it. But does the data support the article or does the article support the
data? Both actually. It is the responsibility of the researcher to provide
a *package* of evidence and argument in order to advance our understanding.

This presentation will introduce ways to interconnect your article and data
in ways that make them most readily understood and useful by others.
Topics include how to prepare data for presentation, how to ensure the data
are well stewarded, and how to provide fair credit and access to data
through citation. It will also touch briefly on other research outputs like
software and protocols.

Mark Parsons is a Senior Research Scientist at the Tetherless World
Constellation at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He researches mediation
and how researchers actually share data and collaborate. Mark was the first
Secretary General of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and stepped down in
July 2017. He focuses on stewarding research data and making them more
accessible and useful across different ways of knowing. He has led major
data stewardship efforts for more than 20 years, and received the American
Geophysical Union Charles S. Falkenberg Award as an advocate of robust data
stewardship as a vital component of Earth system science and as an
important profession in its own right. Prior to joining Rensselaer, Mark
was a Senior Associate Scientist and the Lead Project Manager at the
National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). While at NSIDC, he defined and
implemented their overall data management process and led the data
