Overview

Challenge Overview

 

The DataWorks! DMP Challenge is an opportunity to learn about data management plans, receive expert feedback, and win prizes. 

Data management plans (DMPs) play an integral role in ensuring that data are collected, organized, stored, and shared responsibly. This challenge is an opportunity to practice using the 2023 NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan template (NOT-OD-014). We invite you to amend your existing DMP or create one specifically for this competition. 

As part of this challenge, FASEB will award up to ten Outstanding NIH DMSP awards, each of which includes a prize of $500. You can also win an additional $500 award for collaborating with a librarian on your DMP.  

Submissions due: October 21, 2022 11:59 pm ET.

Rules for Submission: 

  • The DMP must describe a current or past biological or biomedical research project.
  • The DMP must use the FASEB DataWorks! template in the DMPTool. You will need to register for an account (it’s free) to access the template.
  • The DMP should be in English.
  • The DMP must be prepared using the DMPTool and made publicly available online. 
  • DMP Challenge submissions must use the FASEB submission form and include a DMP-ID generated through the DMPTool.

Because of legal restrictions beyond our control, while anyone submitting a DMP will be considered for an award, the monetary component of the award is only available to participants who are eligible to work in the United States.

 

Evaluation: 

Valid submissions will be reviewed by a panel of expert judges, guided by a DMP rubric based on the Belmont Forum and DART Project and aligned with the NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing requirements.
