Towards Authenticity: Critical Appraisal of Data Management Plans
During this workshop, data scientists and program officers will be introduced to the many areas of research data management and sharing, specifically around the role of data management plans (DMPs) in grant proposals.
In addition to learning how to evaluate DMPs from the perspective of a data curator, attendees will:
- learn how their roles fit into the entirety of the research data lifecycle,
- discover how to balance sharing sensitive data while protecting participant privacy, and
- brainstorm ways to integrate best practices for DMPs into the grant proposal process.
This session combines lecture, activities, and discussion, and therefore registrants are encouraged to come prepared to participate.
