Research Data Management Workshop 1: Planning for Data Management

September 14, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

New! Research Data Management Workshop #1: Planning for Data Management

Workshop Summary:

Increasingly, researchers are required to develop data management plans detailing the aggregation, dissemination, and preservation of their research. This is particularly true for federally-funded research. The funding, managing, and sharing of research data involve multiple stakeholders throughout the data lifecycle. This training workshop will introduce the participants to (1) key stakeholders responsible for effective data management, (2) key components of a data management plan (includes ownership, collection, storage, and sharing), (3) some UF infrastructure and resources to include in a data management plan, and (5) the DMPTool that allows participants to develop a data management plan.

Course contents:

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Review DCC Checklist for Data Management Plan
  • View two DMP examples from successfully awarded grant proposals by UF researchers
  • Explore the DMPTool ( to create data management plans
