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.
Make a plan
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.
