This workshop will focus on the usage of nodegoat, which is specifically developed as a data management, network analysis, and visualisation environment for research projects in the humanities

In this clinic you will learn how to design a research data workflow that works for your research project. Whether you are gathering a small set of data or a large set of data, it is important that you store and manage this data properly so you can use your data to its full potential.
