GS711-10 Research Data Management at Duke
Graduate students will be eligible to receive RCR credit for participation in this event. In response to expectations for open access to publicly funded research, agencies from the NSF to the NEH require data management plans as part of funding proposals. Increasingly, researchers are expected to provide access to data as part of verifying and replicating research results. This workshop provides a high-level overview of the research data lifecycle, focusing on particular moments and issues to consider in order to effectively and responsibly manage data used in a range of disciplinary projects. Participants will learn about resources available at Duke to support data management and where to go for additional help. Topics covered: funder requirements and writing data management plans for grant proposals; records management for collaboratively produced data; best practices for data description; data storage options and appropriate back-up procedures; sharing, publishing, and getting credit for your data; the when, why, and how of data archiving for long-term preservation.
