Researchers world-wide have been moving towards open research, meaning all the results of research in any discipline should be shared without restrictions. Granting agencies in the U.S. have mandated the sharing of research outputs since 2013. For research to be shared it must be managed appropriately. Changing technology is impacting the way research is being conducted as is interdisciplinary and collaborative work. Managing the research appropriately starts with the writing of the grant proposal, continues throughout the research process and even after the closeout of the project with the outputs being shared. This workshop will cover federal and University policies surrounding data ownership, and stewardship. Understanding data management plans, secure campus storage options and how to share your research outputs will be discussed. The workshop will the basics, such documenting the research, developing file naming systems, metadata and why it is important, and campus resources to assist you in managing your research. We will also show you where you can find data already in repositories for you to use in your research.
