DVS Workshop: Data Management and Grants: Complying with Mandates

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-04-12 14:00
Wed, Apr 12, 2017
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop RoomFirst Floor
Today, researchers are increasingly faced with requirements from both federal and private funders to share, archive, and plan for the management of their data. This trend began in 2003 when NIH released their data sharing policy and in 2011 the NSF began requiring that all grant proposals include a two-page Data Management Plan (or DMP). Then in 2013 an Office of Science and Technology Policy Memo directed all federal agencies with over $100 million in annual funding to develop plans to make research products, including data, openly accessible. This workshop will provide an overview of funding agencies' DMP requirements, the primary components of data management plans, and suggestions for integrating data management updates into grant reporting. Attendees will also learn about tools and resources that can help them write a DMP that complies with funder mandates. A portion of this workshop will include a hands-on data management plan exercise.
