In the last few years granting agencies across the disciplines have increasingly required data management plans as part of a grant proposal that detail strategies to manage, share and preserve research data as part of a funded grant project. NSF, the NIH, the National Endowment for the Humanities and other organizations have similar requirements, and Duke policy requires that research records (including digital data) be kept for at least five years. How should researchers respond? In this presentation, we¿ll give an overview of research data management challenges, opportunities, and describe some new approaches for meeting them.
