How to add metadata...

More how to guides I'm afraid. Turns out there's a pent up demand for simple "how to" guides so here's a new one on adding metadata to datasets. The main goal is to get DClinPsy trainees to start to annotate their data files so that supervisors and understand their raw data.

However the principles are sound and should apply to both students and researchers alike. The guide takes the form of a worked example in SPSS where various examples of bad practice are highlighed and fixed with little or no additional effort.

It also goes on to cover sensible filenames and administrative metadata. Again with practical examples that can be easily understood by readers.
