Scholarship@Dal Libraries - Data Management: Getting Started
The draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy outlines expectations for institutions and researchers to promote sound data management and stewardship practices. One component of the draft Policy includes data management plans - what does a data management plan look like anyway, and why do you need one? This session will address advantages of creating a data management plan and the tools for creating one. If time, we will also briefly address platforms for sharing your data.
By the end of this session, participants will:
- Understanding the importance and utility of management plans for research data/materials of research.
- Be able to build a data management/materials of research plan for a current project using the free, online Portage DMP Assistant tool.
- Have an awareness of Dataverse and FRDR data sharing platforms.
