Researcher Series–Getting Started with Data Management Plans – TRU Newsroom
More and more, there’s a lot of hype about data management plan(DMP)s as they are increasingly required for numerous grants and research projects.
But, what are they and how can you get started making one?
Join this online researcher series event hosted by TRU Reference and Instruction Librarian Erin May, and find out:
- how to get started with a data management plan
- what you need to consider
- strategies for sharing your data
What is a DMP?
A Data Management Plan, or DMP, describes the data and metadata gathered throughout a research project from numeric data, text and transcripts to images, video and audio recordings.
It also includes information about the data files, plans for data storage and rules for sharing data.
Research data management describes the activities researchers perform as they create and save their research data.
Why is it important to properly manage your data?
Most researchers today work with a lot of research data and without proper data management it can be difficult to keep track of everything.
Proper data management can make it easier for you to:
- Find your files
- Keep track of different versions of your data
- Organize and compile information at the end of a project
- Reproduce your work (if required for a journal or patent)
- Pass on your work to another researcher
- Share your work
- Satisfy grant requirements
- Satisfy journal requirements
- Satisfy research ethics board requirements
