Description
Biomedical researchers face multiple challenges in maintaining proper stewardship of their research data. The collaborative nature of team science and funders’ requirements for data management plans have revealed a broad need for adherence to consistent research data management (RDM) best practices. UMMS and partnering libraries have developed the New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC), a case-based RDM curriculum to support researchers’ writing of data management plans. This poster presents ways that NECDMC is being used by a sample of pilot sites and initial feedback from researcher participants.
