Data management help will be set up via GitHub

At a workshop in Gothenburg 2 March SIMSAM researchers decided to start an experiment on sharing knowledge and scripts via GitHub. A structure based on available registers will be set up and people are encouraged to contribute to the joint build-up of knowledge on how to clean/prepare data and to perform research using registers (irrespective of if people are connected to SIMSAM or not). A link to the portal will be provided shortly for it to be used as a way into this service.
