Research Active Staff (RAS): Data Management Planning - Arts


Research Data Management (RDM) is important for the success of a research project and is becoming increasingly important with major funding bodies, including UKRI, the Wellcome Trust and Horizon 2020. This session will include what a plan needs to contain, a look at some sample DMPs from a selection of Research Councils and a demonstration of the Digital Curation Centre’s DMP Online service. While suitable for any type of research this session will emphasise data types commonly generated in arts research, and the new AHRC requirements.

Who should attend?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (staff on Research focused, Teaching focused and Research & Teaching Contracts) and PhD students, particularly those in the Faculty of Arts

Workshop enables delegates to:
Gain a greater understanding of RDM as well as learning how to create Data Management Plans for research projects and discovering where to find help if needed.

Planning for research is essential. Planning should include data management.

• I am writing a research proposal. What does a Data Management Plan contain?

• I am starting a research project. How should I manage my research data?

• What do I do with sensitive data?

• Where should I deposit my research data at the end of a project or publication?

This session focuses on the development and use of Data Management Plans (DMPs).
