Successful management of research data requires consideration of the entire data life cycle as well as understanding of specific user and institutional needs. This session will focus on some aspects of research data management that may receive insufficient attention, including strategies for promoting use and academic recognition of research data while protecting intellectual property; new developments in cloud-based storage practices; and consideration of data management needs in the digital humanities. A high-level overview of other data management issues and approaches along the life cycle, based on a recent volume, Research Data Management: Practical Strategies for Information Professionals (Purdue University Press, 2014), will also be provided.
