The Data Management Plan: Putting policy into practice

A one-day invitational workshop

9:30am to 4:30pm, 8 August, 2008 at the Gryphon Gallery, University of Melbourne

Program | Presentations |

APSR is planning an invitational workshop on the topic of data management planning within institutions, especially universities. With the increasing emphasis on eResearch and the growing reliance across all disciplines on digital media for data creation, storage, manipulation and re-use, there is a need to ensure that data management planning is seen as a necessary step in the research management process.

The workshop will build on work already carried out by the OAK Law Project at the Queensland University of Technology, the work of the ORCA Support Network, and of other Australian universities.

The workshop will address issues such as:

Breakout sessions will be organised around some of these key issues.

Who should attend?


In order to have a productive discussion, the size of the workshop is limited. Prospective participants should contact Margaret Henty by 4 July outlining their interest and relevant work that they are doing in this area; unless otherwise requested, these will be shared with other participants and become part of a public report. Selected attendees will be asked to give brief presentations based on these submissions.

Participants will be advised that they have been selected to attend by July 18.


There will be no cost associated with this workshop. This event is subsidised by the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories which is funded to do outreach work in this area by the Department of Education, Science and Training as part of the Commonwealth Government's "Backing Australia's Ability - An Innovative Action Plan for the Future".

Participants will be responsible for meeting their own travel and accommodation costs.
