Presenter 1

University of Glasgow

In 2010 the US National Science Foundation (NSF) announced that it will mandate the inclusion of a data management plan with all new funding applications. The NSF is not alone in its efforts to improve accountability for data management, and we are beginning to see Research Councils and funding bodies around the world seeking evidence that adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation have been considered from the earliest stages of any publiclyfunded activity.

The Digital Curation Centre has developed DMP Online, a Web-based data management planning tool that assists researchers in creating personalized data management plans to meet specific funders’ requirements. DMP Online has three main functions: to assist researchers in the preparation of basic data management plans at the grant application stage; to help them build and maintain a more detailed DMP during the project’s lifetime; and to enable customized reporting of these activities.

This workshop will provide participants with: An introduction to DMP Online and related resources; The chance to work through the development of a plan drawing upon their own experience; Opportunities to share data management concerns and experiences.
