This week is International Love Data Week, a celebration of all things data! This year's theme is "Data: Agent of Change" and is focused on inspiring our community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change... we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions.
To kick off the celebration, we've assembled 10 positive steps you can take this week to put you on the road to better data for your research. Commit to making one of these changes this week, or go big and start on one every week for the next 10 weeks or every week day for the next 2 weeks!
And, of course, check out all of other great Love Data Week activities!
