Data management plans (or DMPs) document the intentions of a research team in relation to data management considerations, answering questions like; what type of data will you collect; where will it be stored and who has access to it; and do you plan to share your data outside of a publication format? DMPs are increasingly suggested or required as part of funding applications, including a small number of Tri-Agency awards in the 2022-23 granting cycle.

In this session, we will explore DMP Assistant, a tool for DMP creation developing in Canada, as well as provide an overview of basic elements of a DMP and under which circumstances DMPs are required or useful. No prior knowledge of DMPs is required. If you are new to concepts of research data management, consider also signing up for the "Setting up for Success with RDM" session in October.

In this session, attendees will: 

  • review the basic elements of a DMP as well as when they are required
  • explore the DMP Assistant tool for developing DMPs in a Canadian context
  • begin to develop their own responses to common DMP questions
