"Research Data Management 2: Writing a DMP" webinar materials
datasetposted on 19.03.2019 by Georgina Parsons
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
These are the slides and supporting documents used in Cranfield University's one-hour DMP webinar. (It's also run as a workshop in expanded format, see links.) The audience is both doctoral students and research staff.
Workshop overview: Before starting to collect/create data during a research project, it is important to have a data management plan (DMP) in place, as good preparation ensures you will manage your data most efficiently. Doctoral students are required to create a DMP and most research councils require a DMP to be submitted with grant proposals; Cranfield University policy requests that all research projects use a DMP.
This webinar talks you through the required content of a DMP with time in each section for you to begin drafting your own content and ask questions.
Intended learning outcomes (ILOs)
After attending the session attendees will be able to:
• explain what a data management plan is;
• summarise why a DMP is important;
• list data management elements to consider when writing a DMP;
• find further help and support.
These map to sub-domains C1 and D2 of the RDF.
