Data Practices

(Excuse us while we are in the process of re-arranging content!!)

Best practices for data management and analysis varies greatly depending on your data and analysis requirements. We encourage HBS researchers with large datasets to contact Research Computing Services ( for a one-on-one customized review of your data including techniques and tricks that can be used to enhance and expedite your research. We have compiled some general information about best practices, efficiency, and strategies on working with data on the Research Grid, found on the pages in this section.

We strongly suggest you review the Recommended Reading on our Other Resources page.
