The HMS Data Management Working Group (DMWG) offers resources for biomedical and biological research data management. This includes developing resources reflecting current data management approaches, aggregating resources relevant to research data management, and offering user training in the many resources available to our research community.
Here you can find recent news and upcoming classes/events to stay up-to-date on data management and rigorous science topics. You can view slides from previous classes under "Class Materials." We also encourage you to sign-up for our quarterly "Data Management Newsletter" in order to stay connected with the group, recent policy changes, and upcoming trainings. If you are hosting a RDM related event, please submit it to our community calendar via our Harvard Longwood Campus Training Submission Form.
The DMWG works hard to repond to the local needs of our research community and develop resources that reflect and assist current data management workflow approaches. Current resources you may find useful:
- Research Data Management Onboarding Checklist
- Research Data Management Offboarding Checklist
- Research Data Management Lifecycle Checklist
- Electronic Lab Notebook Matrix
- Data Repository Matrix
Lastly, the "Additional Resources" tab is the place to find HMS and Harvard policies regarding data storage, intellectual property, data security and privacy. Here you will also find external links to educational opportunities to learn more about data management and how to improve your research processes.
