Data Management Newsletter January 2019

Who is the HMS Data Management Working Group?

The HMS Data Management Working Group (DMWG) formed in response to identified unmet needs in biomedical and biological research data management. Check out working group goals and subgroups on the Harvard Biomedical Data Management website!

We hold open meetings that anyone is welcome to join. These generally meet on the first Thursday of the month at 10:00am - 11:00am in Armenise Building Room 506. Come to a meeting to find out more!
Harvard DataFest January 22-23

DataFest is a two-day event held during J-term and developed by data practitioners and researchers from across the university. Hosted by the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), the purpose is for participants to develop skills in working with data. It is structured around the data lifecycle, includes lectures and hands-on sessions focused on data concepts, project planning, data science workflows, processing and analysis, and data dissemination.

Research Data Management Onboarding Checklist

The Onboarding Checklist has been created to serve as a general, research data management-focused guide to employee/trainee onboarding as they join a new lab or begin new projects. The document provides two checklists: Checklist for Joining a New Lab and Checklist for Starting or Joining a New Project. Find out more on the Harvard Biomedical Data Management website!


Online System for Data Use Agreements

In support of guidance published in November 2018 by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, Harvard researchers can submit and manage Data Use Agreement (DUA) requests through an online system. Find out more about DUAs as well as process support, system guidance, and training for the new DUA online system by visiting the Harvard Biomedical Data Management website.


Call For New Members: Data Management Plans Subgroup

f5863eb6-763f-4bb3-bcfe-a5fec926cdcd.jpegWe seek new members to join this newly created working group! This subgroup will work to compile existing resources and create materials on project-specific Data Management Plans (DMPs). It will create and publish resources for generating DMPs that support data management throughout an entire lab. The subgroup will look for collaboration opportunities with other groups to better understand needs of researchers and labs.
