Week 9: Continued project developments and internship wrap-up

It seems like only yesterday that we started our internship. As our mentor (Megan, who interned last year) told us, 9 weeks goes by fast! She wasn’t kidding! Our final week helped us to wrap up some project elements while firming up other parts for future collaborations. Some compelling patterns Continue reading Week 9: Continued project developments and internship wrap-up

Week 9: Best practices and reflection

In the final week of our internship we’ll make separate blog posts and use our posts to both provide updates about our project and also reflect on the experience of our two month DataONE internship. In the final week of our project, we made additions and edits to the data Continue reading Week 9: Best practices and reflection

Week 8: Analysis, figures and data citation best practices

In our 8th week, we worked with project mentors to refine our systematic review database and analysis. The main question for our internship was whether a selection of data-aggregation studies could be repeated through repositories available in DataONE. During the preceding weeks we extracted dozens of pieces of data from Continue reading Week 8: Analysis, figures and data citation best practices

Week 7: Modeling data-aggregation input data source and output information

Welcome to the seventh installment of Project 2: Supporting Synthesis Science! First, I neglected to include in last week’s blog one of the nice plots Rob made to display the characteristics of our set of data-aggregation studies. This one is a map showing how the number of papers breaks down Continue reading Week 7: Modeling data-aggregation input data source and output information

Week 8: DataONE MetaData parser Application

Hi All, This blog is in follow-up with my earlier blogs for the Project 4: Extending Libmagic for Identification of Science Resources. This week was very fruitful and we were able to resolve most of our design and development issues for the final application. The application developed is in its final Continue reading Week 8: DataONE MetaData parser Application

Week 8 – Stitching two packages using provenance

Hi all, In my week 8, I have focused on: storing additional provenance information that a result in a package is derived from which object in another package (we call it stiching for now), and updating the bundling script introduced last week as well as the test of a tale Continue reading Week 8 – Stitching two packages using provenance

Week 6: analysis of science synthesis data

In our sixth week of the synthesizing science project, we jumped into the analysis of data we’d extracted, corrected, and re-tooled over previous weeks. This process was aided by establishing a github repository for data and R scripts and by employing the very useful “googlesheets” R package (by Jenny Bryan) Continue reading Week 6: analysis of science synthesis data
