Great to see some easy to grasp best practice in data management.
I think the manuscript could gain in clarity and effectiveness if you would add:
- one section about the definition of "human readability" and "computer readability". (there are examples along the manuscript, but it might be more effective to make a special section for it). One could use the occasion to specify what is computer readable in an excel file and what is not.
- one section explaining why the Data Organization should be created as soon as possible, (i.e. before the data acquisition). Discuss whether one should involve the statistician at that step.
- one word about data analysis reproducibility in the discussion would be welcome, maybe something about pre-registration too?
I hope this helps.
