UPDATE: Due to its popularity, we will now be offering a second session of this course on April 30, 2-3 pm.
You’ve thought carefully about how you’ll conduct your research. You’ve spent hours in the lab or the field gathering your data. But have you thought about how to best manage that data to make analysis easier, ensure that you don’t lose the results of all your hard work, and preserve your data for the future? A data management plan (DMP) addresses these questions and more to help you get the most out of your data. Plus, many grant funders, including the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, require that grant proposals include DMPs.
Whether you’re writing a formal DMP to meet a funder requirement or you just want to think ahead about how to best manage your data, this workshop will walk you through the steps to writing a successful data management plan. We’ll discuss how to use the DMPTool, a free, interactive website for writing DMPs, and cover resources to help you answer the questions you’ll need to think about in writing your DMP.
Two sessions will be offered, both in the Biomedical Library Classroom:
Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 12 -1pm
Tuesday, April 30, 2-3 pm (click to sign up for the April 30 session)
This workshop is the first in the Biomedical Library's new Data Wednesdays series! Join us the fourth Wednesday of every month to learn about a topic related to research data management.
