First Steps in Data Management Planning

Having a data management plan (DMP) is a great way to ensure that your research project remains on track and that your data retains its integrity throughout the entire research life cycle. This course will introduce the concept of a data management plan, and using the mock project data from session 1, will examine a ‘dirty’ dataset and explore what is needed to have high-quality descriptions and documentation of data, articulated in a CSV or readme file.

Office hours to support this workshop will be held on Friday, 02 October. Please register in advance.

Sheryl Adam is the subject liaison librarian for Geography, Sociology and Psychology at Koerner Library. She has been presenting workshops on Research Data Management for more than four years.

This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three week period this fall.  The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!

These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
