Research Data Consultations

The CSC provides one-on-one consultations for Research Data

Staff at the CSC’s Research Data Hub are here to help you wrangle your research data. Get support with data cleaningmodelling, statistical analyses, and data visualization. Specializing in R and Python, we offer one-on-one consultations to address research data related questions throughout the research life cycle.


Summer Hours

Please note that our services will be limited until the end-of-June. Our services will be closed for July and August and will reopen in September.

Booking an Appointment

We use the QReserve booking system for appointment booking. If you are new to the QReserve system, please visit the Qreserve Booking Instructions in the sidebar for a step-by-step guide to making an appointment.

View our schedule, details of supports, and book an appointment. Research data consultations will continue over the summer with reduced hours.

SCHEDULE

Researchers may choose to contact csc.ok@ubc.ca as an alternative to booking via QReserve.

When to Book an Appointment

There are three times we suggest you book an appointment.

Plan

This is the best time to book an appointment; the questions you can ask and the analyses you can perform are contingent on the data you plan to collect and the collection methods you use. Make sure the questions you plan to address and the analyses you intend to conduct align with your data collection plan. Connect with a data consultant.

Collect

Whether “in the field” for you means conducting a survey, gathering previously collected data, or counting observations in a literal field, things often diverge from the original plan. This doesn’t mean all is lost. Find out if there’s a way to address unanticipated changes to your data collection protocol that still allow you to address your research question. Talk with a data consultant.

Analyze

Struggling to clean, organize, or re-structure your data? Or maybe you need a helping hand interpreting or visualizing results? Our data consultants can help with that.

Drop-in for a Chat

The CSC hosts weekly drop-ins in LIB 111. Bring your questions and we’ll do our best to connect you with the best person to help.

Join us on Tuesdays from 2-3pm in LIB 111.

Data Drop-ins run October 3 to December 12, 2023 and will resume again starting January 9, 2024.
