This workshop will cover what information to include in your data management plan (DMP) for your grant proposals. We will cover data types and formats, metadata, data sharing, and archiving and preservation. We will also demonstrate the DMPTool and show how it can be used to create a DMP for 24 different granting agencies’ DMP requirements. Come prepared to write a data management plan for an upcoming grant proposal or for a project you already have underway.
This workshop will cover best practices for managing your research data, including file naming and organization, file versioning, using databases vs. spreadsheets, creating metadata, backups and security, and sharing and preservation. Learn how you can archive your research data using Trace, UT’s Institutional Repository.
