UIUC data management guide

This week on the Scholarly Commons’ website , a set of “Data Management” webpages went live. This guide, developed by the Library’s eResearch Implementation Committee, is intended to help researchers on campus understand the components of good data management and write data management plans for funding agencies like the National Science Foundation.

The guide covers:

  • Funder Requirements
  • What is Data
  • Storage, Backups & Security
  • File Formats & Organization
  • Documentation & Metadata
  • Intellectual Property Rights
  • Privacy & Confidentiality
  • Research Data Sharing & Licensing
  • Templates & Resources
  • Glossary

Researchers are also welcome to contact the Library ( researchdata@library.illinois.edu ) for additional or individualized assistance with research data management!
