Everyone is Invited

Please join us for the 2nd lecture in the Rebecca J. Holz Series in Research Data Management. Trisha Adamus, Data, Network, and Translational Research Librarian at Ebling Library will be presenting “De-Mystifying the Data Management Requirements of Research Funders.”

Where? Third-floor Teaching Lab at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, 330 N. Orchard St., from 12:00-1:00 on October 16th, 2012

Since the announcement of the NSF Data Management Plan requirement, researchers have had many questions about it: Will I be required to make all of my data available on the web in perpetuity? Where will I put all of this data? Who will pay for storage after the grant is finished? The answers to these questions aren’t always straightforward, especially since the NSF requirements are relatively general.

The NSF requirement isn’t the only one researchers face. Many federal funding agencies have data management requirements for PIs. What does this landscape look like? What can we learn from examining a range of data policies? This talk will review over two dozen funder policies and provide strategies for writing a data management plan. Hope to see you there.
