Finding common ground and identifying opportunities: Case study in data policy at an academic medical school
Embargo Lift Date
We present this paper to our colleagues as a case study of a well supported effort by a large medical school to actively engage researchers in data management by requiring the completion of data management plans. We will outline the people and roles involved in this initiative, the efforts to scope and adjust the mandate over the past three years, the communication and work to change research culture, the infrastructure used to create these plans, and the training and support provided throughout to the research community. We hope this work offers insight and proves useful in advocating for and/or engaging with research data management work at your respective institutions.
