Introduction to Data Management Planning and DMPonline

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

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.
