Data Management and Reporting: BCO-DMO Data Management Services and Best Practices

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) hosted an Early Career Chief Scientist Training Workshop in June 2019. The goal of this workshop was to help early-career marine scientists plan and write effective cruise proposals, develop collaborative sampling strategies and plans, become familiar with shipboard equipment and sampling at sea, and communicate major findings through the writing of manuscripts and cruise reports. This presentation provides information on data management and reporting best practices for chief scientists. It includes information on the National Science Foundation (NSF) data policy requirements, writing a Data Management Plan (DMP), the data lifecycle, data publication, and shipboard data management recommendations.
