Data Management Plans in practise – research funder perspectives and practical demos

Join SciLifeLab Data Centre and NBIS in collaboration with Uppsala University Library and Umeå University Library for a joint virtual event “Data Management Plans in practise – research funder perspectives and practical demos“. The first hour is focused on Data Management Plans (DMPs) from the perspective of Swedish research funders.

Part 1 – Data Management Plans (DMPs) from the perspective of Swedish research funders
Today, many research funders require or recommend that researchers write DMPs for the research projects that they fund. What is the purpose of DMPs from the research funder´ s perspective? What would the funder like to achieve with the DMPs? Major Swedish research funders present their perspective as stakeholders, followed by a panel discussion about how DMPs can help researchers and funders conduct research more effectively and to improve the quality of the research outputs.

Part 2 – Demonstration of DMPonline and Data Stewardship Wizard
Many researchers and PhD students perceive writing a DMPs as a difficult task. A common mistake that researchers make when they write their first DMPs is copying content from their research plan. This is usually not going to work well because data management plans address different questions than research plans. A data management plan is not about scientific questions but about work with information and how this information can be preserved and shared with other stake holders. This webinar offers interested participants an opportunity to see how tools for writing DMPs look like, what guidance they give and how one can use question-based templates to write a data management plan in a short time. The demonstrations cover the tools DMPonline and Data Stewardship Wizard. DMPonline is a general tool that researchers can use to write DMPs or all disciplines. Data Stewardship Wizard has a different design and SciLifeLab offers an instance focused on research in life sciences.

When: Nov 22nd 2023. 10.00-12.00 (Stockholm time) on Zoom

Target group: Researchers and PhD students from all research fields and everybody else who works with research data.
