This session occurs at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus and is part of the Digital Scholarship @UTSC Series.

Managing research data is a critical part of the research process. Data management planning from the outset can save you valuable time as your project progresses and makes it easier for you to meet ethical, funding and government policy requirements for publicly funded research projects. Data management planning also ensures that your data will be accessible for replication and validation, and available to be used in future research projects as well as for educational purposes.

Through a combination of lecture and interactive activities, this three-hour workshop will serve as a primer to managing research data throughout the research life cycle, with an emphasis on creating sound data management plans. The workshop will begin by describing the anatomy of a data management plan (DMP) and the best practices and tools available to assist with building a DMP. Requirement for data access and preservation from current (and future) funding agency mandates will also be discussed.
