Creating a Data Management Plan - workshop

Starting January 18, 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will require a data management plan will all new grant proposals. Similar to the National Institutes of Heath (NIH), the plan should describe how the federally funded research data will be shared and preserved for future use. Sharing of data consists of several practices including: accurately describing the data collection process (including methodologies and metadata), ensuring data integrity for validation/reuse, preserving access to the data for long-term, as well as securing any intellectual property rights or privacy controls for appropriate access to the data set.

We discuss these areas in detail, provide a checklist of questions to address in your data management plan, and share experiences in a small group setting. Finally, we will introduce you to some services and tools that may assist your data planning, such as tools for data sharing and publishing. See the University Libraries' Managing Your Data Web page for more resources.
