Data Management Plans Workshop w/Unmil Karadkar


Apr 23 2024


10:00 am - 11:30 am

10:00 – 11:30 EDT

Data Management Plans (DMPs) are increasingly required in many countries either when applying for research funding or after a project has been funded. While most researchers think of the data collected during their research in the context of research objectives and questions, these documents require researchers to think of the lifecycle of the data artifacts detached from their research context, a position that is unfamiliar to many humanities and social science researchers. This presentation will focus on DMPs as documents, the principles behind managing research data, and the templates and websites that are available for helping researchers craft meaningful DMPs. The workshop will also focus on research data management activities, the infrastructures that are available for supporting these activities, and the locations for seeking local expertise.

While we intend to leave sufficient time for discussion after the presentation, we encourage you to submit questions so that the initial presentation can be tailored to meet the specific interests. Please submit your questions by 19 April 2024 using this form.

This is workshop #3 in the What Would Data Do? workshop series. You do not need to have attended previous workshops to participate.

About the Series: What Would Data Do? is a workshop series hosted by the Aging in Data project that focuses on data-related issues faced by critical aging studies scholars.

Unmil Karadkar works as a Scientist at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging & Care (CIRAC) at the University of Graz, Austria. He blends techniques from Social, Information, and Computer Sciences to study the creation, management, and use of digital data for supporting scholarship in various disciplines. His current research areas include Sociogerontechnology, human-data interaction, and digital humanities. Unmil is engaged in several communities related to research data management, including the board of Research Data Alliance Austria, and the researcher engagement working group of EOSC-Austria. He leads data governance activities for the Aging in Data project through his service on its governing board. Unmil holds a PhD in Computer Science and a courtesy appointment as a Research Associate at the University of Texas at Austin, USA.
