Library Shorts 30/04/15 – Data management planning

Funding bodies increasingly require grant-holders to develop and implement Data Management and Sharing Plans (DMPs).

Plans typically state what data will be created and how, and outline the plans for sharing and preservation, noting what is appropriate given the nature of the data and any restrictions that may need to be applied. DMPonline is a flexible web-based tool to assist users to create personalised plans appropriate to their context or research funder. Using DMPonline takes the uncertainty out of creating a DMP. It has been customised with templates for all the major funders and also with appropriate guidance from the Digital Curation Centre, funders and research institutions.

 Come along to this week’s Library Shorts talk and find out more about funder requirements and Data Management Planning at the University of Glasgow – Thursday 30th April at 12.15pm in the Lounge Lab on level 3 of the library (at the front of level 3). No need to book – just come along.
