WORKSHOPS

Date: Thursday, November 21, 2019
Time: 10:00am - 1:00pm
Location: Map & Data Library

Data visualization gives us a better understanding of our data and helps us communicate that to others. It has the potential to generate insights, communicate findings, and illustrate evidence. Conversely, a poor visualization can undermine an argument or even mislead the reader.

Through a combination of lecture and activities, this three-hour workshop will use a data visualization workflow model to introduce students to best practices and guidelines for designing effective visualizations and evaluating visualizations. For the final part of the workshop, students will get a chance to work with a common data visualization tool, Tableau Desktop, creating visualizations such as a line graph of average temperature by month, a treemap of population by world regions, and a stacked bar graph of word frequencies in Romeo and Juliet.

For more information on Data Visualization, including topics covered in the workshop, and services offered by the libraries, see our Data Visualization Guide.

Location: Robarts Library. e-classroom, 4th floor, room 4033. Directions

This webinar will cover how NVivo can assist with your research in the following ways:

    Transcription: New NVivo Transcription tool that can be your automated transcription assistant. Quality assessment of articles Literature Review: Efficiently organize and tag literature, easily keep track of critical quotes, and track ideas across many articles Coding: Code your literature, interviews, surveys, and any other data you may collect in a single, convenient location and analyze all your data for multiple articles in one NVivo project Analyzing Data: Using queries to uncover potential themes, understand words in context, and explore relationships Findings: Gather together all your research findings in a single location, making it easy to link your literature and your data, and to easily find quotes to illustrate themes Publish: With all your data organized and analyzed in an NVivo project, writing happens quickly and easily. Generate rich visualizations in NVivo, which can be exported and included in an article or presentation

Understanding the roles of authors, reviewers, and editors in the publishing process is key to researchers. Publication and dissemination of research outputs is integral to science. This is your chance the learn from Executive Editor Rebecca Cooney from The Lancet about:

    How to construct a manuscript review What editors are looking for in reviewer comments The role of reviewers in publication ethics Navigating tricky situations as a reviewer What is on the horizon in peer review

This is your chance to connect with an editor and ask all of your questions!

This is targeted to students, post docs, early-career researchers, faculty, and anyone interested in better understanding the publishing process.
