Data Management Plan

Research data can take many forms; it is an important product, essential to your work and impact as a researcher. Research data management involves thinking about what will happen to your data during and after a research project. The University and many research funders expect data to be managed effectively and made available wherever possible. The Open Science Team can help you create a data management plan and consider when, where and if the data can be shared.

Witamy w Bibliotece Głównej Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego w Krakowie

All research projects should have a data management plan; some funders (e.g. the National Science Center) require such an application to be submitted as part of the grant application. The plan helps ensure that you have adequate data management resources, including equipment, storage, and personnel. Consider managing short-term and long-term (post-project) data and reviewing and updating the plan as a routine part of project management.

Information on data management plans is available on the research data website. Contact us for help and advice, including comments on data management plans
