Data Management Plans are coming!

It’s clear from the latest Digital Infrastructure Summit in Ottawa last month, building on the work of the Leadership Council on Digital Infrastructure, that Data Management Plans for researchers will be a component of the movement towards a national digital infrastructure, and are likely to be required within a couple of years.

Not sure what a Data Management Plan would involve? What SSHRC requires will emerge over time, but see this lovely blog post by Michael Ullyot of the University of Calgary about data management plans and open scholarship following from the recent consultations following from the responses to the Tri-Council+ Big Data paper.
