Data Management at UMBS

The University of Michigan Biological Station is committed to helping our researchers successfully meet data management requirements such as those recently outlined by the National Science Foundation. The UMBS Research Gateway and the UMBS Data Management Plan are resources you can cite (and use!) to meet funding agency requirements. If you have questions on this topic please contact our Information Manager for assistance. For starters, the LTER has put together a helpful document outlining how to write a data management plan.
