OSU Libraries' Center for Digital Scholarship and Services provides the following research data management services in support of the OSU community:
Assistance with Data Management Plans
The National Science Foundation requires that all funding proposals include a Data Management Plan to address sharing and availability of data generated from the proposed research. You may use an OSU-specific data management planning tool to create your plan: DMP Tool.
You may also wish to consult our Guide to Data Management Planning.
We can generate and assign an unlimited number of DOIs or ARKs to OSU-affiliated data files as a member of EZID.
Data Curation in Digital Repositories
In some cases, ScholarsArchive@OSU can serve as a data repository for your research data. The libraries will also assist in identifying other options for data curation and storage such as subject based data repositories.
Check http://bit.ly/w6LcgB for workshops each term.
We provide metadata, data organization and preservation expertise in relation to research data and can recommend optimal practices for keeping data usable and accessible to others.
