Collecting data for research? Before you do that, make sure you draft a data management plan! Luckily, the Samuel J. Wood Library can assist you with its new Research Informationist service.
Why use a Research Informationist?
Good data management practices can improve the efficiency and accuracy of your research, save time, and help you to avoid bureaucratic nuisances. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has begun requiring data management plans to be included in some types of grant applications. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) also requires researchers to document details on management of research data.
