Moore Module: Data Management Plans

Self-taught course


Using and collecting data is part of all academic work from keeping track of sources to producing new knowledge at the end of a project. Whatever type of data you deal with it is important to keep good records so that you can track down what you need quickly and efficiently. Open research has added another element to this by advocating the sharing of the results of research to help further wider knowledge and many research funders now expect to see evidence of a solid strategy in the form of a data management plan.

This self-paced, interactive module allows learners to discover the different elements of a data management plan and guides them through the process of producing one for their own project.
