Preparing Your Data Management Plan

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

Grant proposals for a growing number of funders require data management plans, including the National Science Foundation. Developing a competitive data management plan requires understanding and effectively addressing the many aspects of research data management that funders and reviewers emphasize (e.g., plans for research data security, sharing, and documentation). Join Data Management Services for a training session on preparing data management plans. During this one-hour workshop, we will cover the research data questions one should answer in creating an effective, competitive plan. Participants will have an opportunity to ask data management and planning questions specific to their research.
