Keeping your research data safe with data management planning

Mar 9, 2018 - 10:00 to 11:30

Where do you store your research? Who has access to your files? What must you do to preserve your work after the project ends? The management of your research data is now a critical part of scholarship in Canada. This session will introduce you to research data management (RDM) and to data management plans (DMPs), a key part of many grant applications today. We will discuss things such as research data ethics, access, and metadata. This is a learn-by-doing session: participants will use Laurier Library's free tools to write their own data management plans to bring back to their teams and research advisors. Long-term consultation and support is also available. This session is open to both graduate students and faculty. Learning outcomes include: learn about research data management, write a data management plan for your own research at Laurier, and learn where to store your research data based on your safety, access, and security needs.
