Did you know that making your data available to other researchers can impact the discovery and relevance of your research?

Research Data Management is essential for responsible research and planning should begin early. By creating a data management plan (DMP) for your data at the beginning of the project, you save time and effort later on and increase your discoverability.  

This session will begin with an overview of the components of typical data management plans.  You’ll then have the opportunity to evaluate a sample DMP, spurred on by a little friendly competition.

Featuring guest speakers:
Julie Goldman, Research Data Management Services Librarian, Countway Library of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Meghan Kerr, Archivist and Records Manager, Countway Library of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Lunch will be provided.
