Data Management

Tisch Library supports faculty, students and staff in the creation of Data Management and Data Sharing Plans and provides advice navigating storage, organization, sharing and use of electronic tools and resources for managing research data.

For help with a Data Management or Data Sharing Plan, please write to Kristin Lee (kristin.lee@tufts.edu), Research Data Librarian.

Why manage your data?

Increasingly funding agencies are requiring researchers to make their research publically accessible. Read more here on the Data Management Guide

Data Management Plans

What is a Data Management Plan?
A Data Management Plan is a document that outlines how you will document, store, manage, and ultimately share the research data you generate. One key service Tisch provides is working with faculty/researchers in developing data management plans that are required for federal or other granting organizations proposals.

Data Management Plan Requirements from Funding Agencies
Several federally-funded granting agencies require data management plans. Read more about these requirements here.
