12/12/2012 2-3:30pm Data Management With growth in the volume of digital data, and the new requirement from NSF that all grant proposals now include a data management plan, we present an introduction to managing research data. We will discuss: project documentation and metadata, directory structures and file naming conventions, storage, security and backups, data sharing and citation, intellectual property issues, file formats, data retention and archiving. The ideas and methods are largely independent of academic discipline, but examples are drawn from specific fields of research. The target audience is faculty, graduate students, and anyone else responsible for managing research data. R. Brittain and J. Wallace
