Mastering Data Management Plans

If you're submitting a grant proposal to a federal agency, you may have to include a data management or sharing plan with your proposal. Many journals require similar statements with manuscript submissions. This session will help you understand the typical requirements, design your plan, and deal with special situations. Members of the Research Data Services team from the University Libraries will give a presentation and answer your questions.
