As part of the Data Champions initiative, we invite members of the Department of Chemistry to contribute to a list of instructions for converting the data you generate through experiments using techniques such as NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, x-ray crystallography etc. into open data formats that can be shared easily.
The aim is to save researchers time and effort in trying to find this out themselves, and to make it as easy as possible for them to share their data in an open format that is accessible to everyone.
First on our list are very brief instructions for converting NMR spectroscopy data from TopSpin to a text file in the internationally accepted open data format JCAMP-DX.
Please send your instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be added to the list.
Data Champions at the Department of Chemistry
Data Champions are local experts on research data management and sharing who can provide advice and training within their departments.
Your Data Champions currently are:
- Sergio Cuesta (Sergio.MartinezCuesta@cruk.cam.ac.uk, also based at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, Balasubramanian Group)
- Kent Griffith (email@example.com, Grey Group)
- Quentin Peter (firstname.lastname@example.org, Knowles Group)
We are currently planning research data management related activities that we can carry out in the department. Please let us have your ideas! Contact one of the Data Champions or Clair Castle, Librarian at the Department of Chemistry at email@example.com.
Please visit the Chemistry Library’s Open Data website to find out more about your Data Champions, and other resources that will help chemists do open research.
