Energy & Resources: Data: Management

A guide to research resources in Energy

Data Requirements

NSF - National Science Foundation:
- Graduate Research Fellowship program
- Division of Institution & Award Support

NSF Data Management Plan Requirements:
Proposals submitted after January 18, 2011, must include a supplementary document labeled “Data Management Plan”.
NSF data management plan requirements: for Biological Sciences, NSF, NIH and other federal agencies mandate data plans with grant proposals.
Start with this list:
---- Make a plan to store your data
---- Find the right medium to store your data
---- Develop a system to organize your data
---- Make sure that your data has easy access
---- Make sure that your data is safe and secure.


Open Data: SPARC, (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition)

Data Conservancy Organization - (NSF) collect, organize, & preserve data.

Watson: data visualization tools from IBM

Data Management & Publishing Checklist, MIT

US Naval Observatory (USNO)  - Oceanography Portal: includes astronomical data and products, & serves as the official source of time for the U.S. Department of Defense & a standard of time for the entire United States.

Data Management Guidance

Research Data Management, UC Berkeley support for data storage, and more

Data Management General Guidance: Guidelines for creating, organizing, managing, and sharing your data [CDL]

DASH: Publish datasets, and access published research data.

EZID: Create persistent identifiers (DOIs and ARKs) for digital content. Berkeley researchers contact for a free account.

DMPTool: Instructions for creating a data management plan (DMP) that meets the requirements of specific funding agencies [CDL]

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID): Register your own persistent digital identifier that uniquely designates you and supports automated linkages between you and your articles, presentations, and other products of scholarly creativity.

Research IT @Berkeley: cloud computing, large projects, assistance with hardware.
Technology@Berkeley. UC Berkeley list of services

UC3, University of California Curation Center - UC/California Digital Library

Collaboration, ELNs, Repositories

Collaboration, file sharing and storage
bDrive: Berkeley instance of Google Drive; unlimited storage
Berkeley Box: 50 GB of file storage
bCourses Projects: File storage and collaborative projects/courses (2 GB)
Project Jupyter: Open source, interactive data science and scientific computing platform for research data documentation

Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) with free trials (UC Berkeley does not recommend or discourage the use of any particular ELN):

Data repositories
Open Access Directory of Data Repositories [Simmons University]
DataBib [Institute of Museum and Library Services Registry of Research Data Repositories

What is?

ORCID = Open Researcher and Contributor ID. Free registration of nonproprietary name code for contributor / author identification.

What does this mean for UC Berkeley? Everyone should have an ORCID identification to track article publishing, link to data sets.
Register: for an ORCID ID.
