Sharing your research data is a crucial step in the lifecycle of your project. Funders expect it, it’s good for your scholarly reputation, and it promotes transparency and reproducibility. But how can you share your data effectively? Choosing the right repository and making the most of its capabilities will result in better discovery and citation of your data. This workshop surveys the features of general self-service repositories, explains the requirements for data preparation, and equips participants to prepare and package their data to get the most benefit from their effort. This workshop builds on last month’s Crash Course in Research Data Management, but is not required for attendance.
WRITING YOUR DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN
Thursday, November 14, 3:00–4:30 PM • Digital Scholarship Lab
Most grant applications now require a data management plan (DMP) that describes measures
that investigators will take to manage and protect research data during a project, and how they will proactively share data at the end of a project. But DMP requirements are not always easy to understand and apply to a project. This workshop will help make sense of DMPs, survey the data management plan requirements of major funders, show how to use DMPTool, and give participants a jumpstart on writing their next data management plan. This workshop builds on Crash Course in Research Data Management, but is not required for attendance.
