This informative session will discuss data management plans - formal documents that outline how data/scholarly products of research are to be handled both during and after a research project. In anticipation of the Tri-Agency Policy on data management which will recommend them, and in support of research ethic board who are requesting them on ethic submissions, this session will walk participants through the University of Manitoba template available on the Portage Network’s DMP Assistant. Using an example, considerations will include: institutional supports for data management, data preservation, metadata description.
By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- Examine the current Canadian data management context
- Explain the roles of the two institutional repositories in meeting research obligations
- Recognize the possible constraints on submission you may face with your own project
