Workshops and training

We hold workshops open to anyone at Stanford on topics like Best Practices for Your Research Data and the Data Management Planning Tool. See our workshop descriptions on the Events page.

We are happy to provide training or instruction to your lab or research group on topics of interest to you.

We love students! We can talk with your class about keeping data organized and other best practices.

We are available to participate in your lab meeting, staff meeting, faculty meeting, symposium, boot camp or brown-bag event. We can do 5 minutes to an hour (or more!). Just let us know what you'd like to hear about and when! 

 

Data management plans

Checklist, image by AJ Cann

We can help you create a data management plan (DMP) for your next research grant proposal.

We provide access to and Stanford-specific content for the DMPTool (Data Management Planning Tool), which can help you create a DMP. This includes text regarding the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) that you can cut and paste into your DMP.

We can review your data management plan and make suggestions. We are also happy to verify whether your intended use of the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) as described in your plan matches up with the SDR services we provide.
