Data management plans are researchers’ written strategies outlining how they will collect and take care of their data during the life of a project and what approaches they will take for sharing and preserving their data at the end of a project. Funders,¬†including the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, are increasingly requiring the submission of a data management plan with a grant application.

This session, hosted by the University Library and open to faculty and research staff from SSD, SSA, and Harris, will introduce:

  • The purpose and importance of a data management plan
  • The basic components of a data management plan
  • Funder requirements related to data management planning
  • DMPTool, a free online tool that guides researchers through the creation of a plan

Light refreshments will be served.
