A requisite for proper offboarding is the capturing of researcher institutional and project knowledge. Researchers should document essential information related to projects and datasets in a Knowledge Transfer File. This ensures projects can continue following researcher departures and enhances research consistency and efficiency. The Knowledge Transfer File should be used in tandem with the RDM Offboarding Checklist, but it can be introduced at the start of a project or as a researcher enters a new lab. Download and use the Knowledge Transfer File template from OSF.

EVERY LAB NEEDS THIS CONTENT! I really appreciate the level of specificity and examples used for each type of research product.
