RDM Basics

Help! I need a Data Management Plan! Get started using the DMP Assistant and More

Session Description:

Or maybe you simply want to be a good data steward and have a plan to manage your data. If so, you’ve come to the right session! Erin and Louise will help you get started by providing you with the tools and resources to create an effective data management plan, whether it’s for an individual project or as part of a large collaboration.

  • Understand the importance and utility of data management plans
  • Be able to build a data management plan for a current project using the free, online Portage DMP Assistant tool.
  • Have an awareness of resources such as the exemplar DMPs and sensitive data toolkit that can help in the planning process.
