Know Your Data Types: What Is My Kind of Data?

The first step in the Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Plan mandated by the 2023 NIH DMS policy (effective January 25, 2023) is to create a list of different data types your project will generate. Identifying these data types will have an impact on aspects like file formats, standards, metadata, and selecting a data repository. When determining your data types, it’s important to consider various factors. Attend this session to gain insight into the process of determining data types and structuring your DMS plan effectively.

In this informative session, you will be guided through various ways to categorize data types and learn how to incorporate them into your DMS Plan.

Free and open to all, registration required for Zoom link.
