UNL Libraries is pleased to welcome Dr. Shane Redman, Senior Data Project Manager for ICPSR, to present on "Writing Data Management Plans that Satisfy Data Sharing Requirements."

Data Management Plans (DMPs) are commonly required by funding agencies as part of grant submissions. Increasingly more funding agencies are also requiring data generated by a project to be shared with the broader scientific community. As one of the oldest and largest social science data archives in the world, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) frequently assists researchers in developing data management plans that satisfy data sharing requirements. This presentation will cover the fundamentals of writing effective DMPs, including topics that should be addressed in a DMP, suggested language to include (and avoid), and additional resources to consult when writing DMPs.

About ICPSR:

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is an international consortium of more than 750 academic institutions and research organizations, which includes the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Located at the University of Michigan, this consortium provides leadership and training in data access, curation, and methods of analysis for the social science research community, and maintains a data archive of more than 250,000 files of research in the social and behavioral sciences.

About the speaker:
