Love Data Week: Writing a Data Management Plan for your PhD

Love Data Week: Writing a Data Management Plan for your PhD


As part of Love Data Week UCD Library are hosting a workshop on 'Writing a Data Management Plan (DMP) for your PhD' together with experts from Research IT and the Office of Research Ethics. The Library’s Data Management Checklist will be used as a template and attendees will be encouraged to fill in the template in groups, allowing them to learn from each other as well as from the facilitators. This will be a practical session where attendees will hear from the experts but will also begin to complete a DMP for their PhD data, with plenty of time for discussion and questions.
