Research Data Management - Planning

Planning for research is essential and should include data management. Well-considered Research Data Management (RDM) is important for the success of a research project.

  • What does a Data Management Plan Contain?
  • I am starting a research project. How should I manage my research data?
  • What should I do with sensitive data?
  • Where can I deposit my research data at the end of a project or publication or publication.

Creating a Data Management Plan can be very illuminating and produces a useful document to provide to funders or to discuss with supervised students. This session will focus on what a plan needs to contain, take a look at some camps DMPs and will demonstrate the use of the Digital Curation Centre's DMP online service with the chance to create a plan for your own project.

Who should attend?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research and Teaching contracts) and PhD students.
