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.
To deposit data with Borealis and the York University Dataverse, please follow the instructions listed in the following guides:

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.
