Data management is essential to make sure that well-organised, well-documented, high quality and shareable research data can be produced from our research projects.
The free introductory workshops on data management basics are intended for researchers and anyone who wants to learn about research data management. This workshop is part of a series of two workshops focusing on the basics of data management.
This first workshop, scheduled for 27th April 11am – 12.30pm, provides an overview of how to manage, document, store and safeguard research data well and how to plan and implement good data management in research projects, with a focus on optimising data sharing.

What is a Data Management Plan?
Data Management Plans (DMPs) document how data generated during a research project will be managed and preserved for reuse. Funders are taking this increasingly seriously and are evaluating the strength of DMPs when assessing bids for research funding.
Who does it apply to?
Staff undertaking research and PGRs.
What is DMP Online?
DMP Online is a data management planning tool. Created by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), it enables researchers to write DMPs using funder templates. It also benefits from:
- Integrated guidance
- Tools to enable collaboration with colleagues/supervisors/library support
DMP Online is highly recommended, helping researchers to meet funder expectations. There is also a BU template for all other projects.
Where to go for more information and support
The Library has developed an extensive Research Data Management (RDM) guide, which includes guidance for DMPs.
