Deadline for DataWorks! DMP Challenge Approaches

By: Katherine McNeil
Wednesday, October 12, 2022
The deadline is next week, October 21, for the DataWorks! DMP Challenge, an opportunity for researchers to win prizes and receive expert feedback in writing NIH data management plans (DMPs). 

DMPs play an integral role in ensuring that data are collected, organized, stored, and shared responsibly. This challenge is an opportunity to practice creating a DMP that aligns with the 2023 NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan (NOT-OD-21-013). 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 10 Outstanding NIH DMSP awards, each of which includes a prize of $500. If you collaborate with your librarian, you can win an additional $500. To learn more and submit an entry, visit www.herox.com/dmpchallenge.

Submissions are due on October 21 by 11:59 pm ET.
