Documenting your research project and resulting data is a critical step in ensuring the long-term sustainability of your work. If you are actively working on a research project for which you will be collecting data, but your funder does NOT require a formal DMP, the following data curation guide can provide a methodical approach to keeping your research documentation well-organized and comprehensive.
We've developed a Data Management Template for use in scholarly research projects, particularly those for which the research is applying for grant funding.
The template is intended to be implemented as part of a research data curation consultation. Please contact Heather Barnes, Digital Curation Librarian, ZSR, at 336-758-2597 or by email, to arrange for a time to review your research data curation needs.
