Data Literacy

Data Literacy
Definition: 

Data Literacy in the sciences can be described as the "knowledge and skills involved in collecting, processing, managing, evaluating, and using data for scientific inquiry. Although there are similarities in information literacy and digital literacy, science data literacy specifically focuses less on literature-based attributes and more on functional ability in data collection, processing, management, evaluation, and use. This emphasis on operational skills coincides with the practice-based production, operation, and use of digital datasets during scientific research."[3]
