Introduction to Data Management Planning (Presented in association with TDSS)

Presenters: Hilary Davis, Will Cross, Mohan Ramaswamy, and Karen Ciccone
Date/Time: Tuesday, October 27, 2-4pm
Location: Talley Student Union 4280

Whether at work or at home, everyone generates a large amount of data. This data can include digital photos, data from your research work, or different versions of your research paper or thesis. Creating a foundation of good data management practices early in a researcher’s career is critical to shaping long-term habits.  In this workshop we will discuss different types of data, how to organize and document your data, file formats, naming and tagging conventions, storage options, and data sharing considerations.  You will also learn about essential components of a data management plan (DMP) required by most federal funding agencies.
