Questiono you recognize the five ways to look at research data? How?
My Answer: Is yes. I have chosen case study 4 (Chemistry) and I looked at how data could be collected through experiments and observations; the data forms can be by means of samples or laboratory notebooks; how it can be stored in a microscopic data format or in a textual way; data files are considered to be come in small or large volumes; lastly the life cycle of the research data is different from discipline to discipline and it also depends on a researcher's point of view or a curator's perspective as Scott and the other authors explain it.
