Introduction to Data Management Planning and DMPonline

1 August 2014
University of Edinburgh Main Library Meeting Suite, Room 1.07, Edinburgh

Overview

Funding bodies increasingly require evidence of appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This half-day workshop provides an introduction to Data Management Planning and DMPonline, the DCC's web-based tool to help researchers write DMPs. We've recently released a new version of DMPonline which offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how institutions can customise it. You can create your own template(s), provide example/suggested answers and add tailored guidance to help researchers respond to requirements. We will demo DMPonline, profile the options available for customising the tool and undertake a practical exercise on data management planning.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • understand funders' requirements for data management and sharing
  • understand what a data management plan is and how to go about completing one  
  • be aware of DMPonline and how the tool can be customised by institutions

 

Please provide feedback for the event.
