Research Data Management Strategy Development at York
In March 2021, Canada’s federal granting agencies launched the Tri-Agency Research Data Management (RDM) Policy. The Tri-Agency policy includes requirements related to institutional research data management (RDM) strategies, data management plans (DMPs), and data deposit. The Open Access Open Data Steering Committee is currently engaged in a broad community consultation process with York University stakeholders to produce an institutional RDM strategy by the Tri-Council deadline of March 1, 2023.
Beginning summer of 2023, a limited number of Tri-Council grants will require the submission of a DMP (data management plan) as part of the application package. Need to create a data management plan? Create an account with DMP Assistant, a nationally-endorsed tool for effective data stewardship.
To deposit data with Borealis and the York University Dataverse, please follow the instructions listed in the following guides:

York University Libraries Workshops
Best Practices for Managing Research Data September 25, 2023, 1:00pm – 2:30pm
This workshop introduces the general principles and best practices for data collection, storage, documentation, and sharing. You will learn about emerging principles, resources and tools that will help you plan and implement data management best practices throughout the data lifecycle and enable data reuse where appropriate.
Create a Data Management Plan (DMP) for Your Research Project October 5, 2023, 12:30pm-2:00pm
This workshop discusses Data Management Plan requirements for a variety of funding agencies, and introduces the Canadian DMP Assistant tool which simplifies DMP creation for your research project.
Safeguarding Your Research Data October 18, 2023, 12:00pm-1:30pm
Grant applications and ethics protocols suggest you need to ensure research data is kept secure, but the “how” of managing this task is rarely addressed. We'll guide you through common research issues connected with privacy and security: using online or "cloud" services for file storage, ensuring a lost laptop doesn't mean compromised data, taking control of online tracking, and managing and sharing all those passwords. This is a privacy and security toolkit no researcher should be without! Attendees should bring a laptop or other internet-connected device.
Participants in this workshop may also be interested the "Safeguarding Yourself Online" session.
Publishing Your Research Data in a Data Repository October 23, 2023, 12:30-2:00pm
This workshop introduces the guiding principles of data publishing. You will learn how to prepare your data for sharing and long term access, and how to select a data repository that meets your needs. A brief overview of the data deposit process for York University Research Data Repositories will also be provided.

The Digital Research Alliance of Canada Webinars
Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Winter Series 2023 (February 14-17, recordings are available now)An introductory webinar series on digital research tools, from February 14–17. This series showcased tools for textual analysis, programming and more.
Compute Ontario Sponsored Workshops
This is a series of events (hybrid; one solely virtual) which tie RDM to advanced research computing infrastructure and specifically the use of the Alliance’s instance of JupyterHub. JupyterHub as an ELN can effectively promote reproducible RDM practices. This training also has tied in an exciting TDM of newspapers workshop that will also be tied to JupyterHub.
