This is a recording of a webinar, together with slides, for presentation on Creating a Data Management Plan with UCT DMP given on Wed February 7th, 2024 (and Wed February 14th, 2024) as part of the Digital Scholarship Series

"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail” is the age-old phrase; this is where Data Management Plans (DMPs) are really helpful. Rather than just being another box to tick in your MoU, a DMP helps you figure out how you will work with and manage your data throughout your research project. You may not have all the answers yet, and some questions will be tough, but taking the time to try to answer them will save you from moments of failure in the future. This session takes you through UCT DMP, our online tool that guides you through creating your data management plan. After this session, you will no longer fear the DMP. If you cannot make it to this session, look out for the repeat that will happen soon.

Digital Scholar Series is run out of Digital Library Services at UCT Libraries. It aims to showcase some of the digital practices and tools available to enhance research skills, with an ongoing focus on managing research data efficiently. Topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for research (what some of us call ‘data’) and touch on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle.
