Title: Data Management Essentials
Abstract: Data Management is increasingly required by funding agencies in several nations around the world. Most researchers are familiar with this new requirement, but many do not know how to prepare data for archiving properly. CCIN/PDC has worked closely with the Polar data community in Canada and internationally to develop guidelines based on stakeholder feedback, as well as implementing data archiving for a number of Canadian national research programs, and so we are well positioned to help others understand and implement them effectively. This webinar will help students and researchers understand why data management is important, what the best practices are, how best to undertake it, as well as address concerns about sharing data. We believe that through education and training, data contributors are capable of attaining success through preparation proactively, rather than reactively.
