DVS Workshop: Writing a Data Management Plan

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-09-26 19:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
"This workshop will be a deep dive into the process of writing a data management plan (DMP) using the DMPTool. To make the most of this workshop, attendees are encouraged to bring a "live" DMP that they are ready to begin or are currently in the process of writing. Attendees without active DMPs may write a "test" DMP based on who they would typically apply to for research funding. The "test" DMP can then serve as a useful reference when it is time to write a live plan. The instructors (both Research Data Management Consultants) will be on-hand to provide individual help during the writing portion of the workshop as needed and, following the workshop, are available to review plans through the DMPTool at any point up to final submission. To fully participate in the workshop, please bring your own laptop."
