Summary: Although scientists learn about methods for collecting data, there is less emphasis on managing the resulting data effectively. This is an increasingly important skill set, especially since funding agencies like NSF have begun to require data management plans. In this webinar, we will cover best practices for scientific data management and review how to use the new DMPTool, a free online wizard from CDL for creating Data Management Plans. There will be time allotted for discussion of data management and the DMPTool at the close of the webinar.
