NISO Training Thursday: Crafting a Scientific Data Management Plan

Thursday, February 26, 2015
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

System Requirements: 

  • NISO has developed a quick tutorial, How to Participate in a NISO Web Event. Please view the recording, which is an overview of the web conferencing system and will help to answer the most commonly asked questions regarding participating in an online Webex event.
  • You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
  • Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
  • Please check your system in advance to make sure it meets the Cisco WebEx requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.


About the Training

Addressing a data management plan for the first time can be an intimidating exercise. Join NISO for a hands-on workshop that will guide you through the elements of creating a data management plan, including gathering necessary information, identifying needed resources, and navigating potential pitfalls. Participants explore the important components of a data management plan and critique excerpts of sample plans provided by the instructors.

This session is meant to be a guided, step-by-step session that will follow the February 18 NISO Virtual Conference, Scientific Data Management: Caring for Your Institution and its Intellectual Wealth
