Are you preparing a research proposal or initiating a research project? Increasingly, funders are requiring that proposals and funded projects include a comprehensive plan that describes how the data will be effectively managed during the life of the project and beyond.
In an ESA special session a team from DataONE, including researchers from ORNL DAAC, NCEAS and USGS, will introduce participants to the critical components of effective data management plans, with consideration of the ways in which your plan can be tailored to the size, duration, and breadth of your project. Participants will receive a Data Management Plan Template that can be easily adapted to meet individual needs as well as a series of examples that span the breadth of ecological research projects.
