Webinar: Using DMPonline – 16 August, 1pm
In the last few years many UK and international research funders have introduced a requirement within their data policies for data management and sharing plans to be part of research grant applications; in the UK this is the case for BBSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC and the Wellcome Trust.
Whilst each funder specifies particular requirements for the content of a plan, common areas are:
- which data will be generated during research
- metadata, standards and quality assurance measures
- plans for sharing data
- ethical and legal issues or restrictions on data sharing
- copyright and intellectual property rights of data
- data storage and back-up measures
- data management roles and responsibilities
- costing or resources needed
When developing a data management plan it’s crucial that you critically assess what you can do to share your research data, what might limit or prohibit data sharing and whether any steps can be taken to remove such limitations.
You can find advice on best practice when you are writing a plan in the research data management area of our website.
Come along to our webinar
Researchers who have developed data management and sharing plans have found it beneficial to have thought about, and discussed, data issues with our research support team first.
We are running a webinar on using DMPonline on Tuesday 16 August, 1-2pm. Our Research Data Manager will explain the components of a data management plan and the process of creating one using the DMPonline system. There will also be time for you to ask any questions you may have.
