CLA Workshop on Data Management Planning
The research data management landscape is rapidly evolving—from funder policies, to institutional strategies, data management planning (DMP), and data deposit. This workshop will provide participants with essential information relating to the development of data management plans to support their research, including their importance and benefits, what makes a ‘good’ DMP, in-depth overview of their key components, and specific things to consider as Linguistics researchers. A hands-on demonstration of the freely available Portage Data Management Planning (DMP) Assistant will be offered, and participants are welcome to create an account prior to the session should they wish to learn to navigate and use this gold standard data management planning tool. Additionally, resources to help you develop your own DMP — including guidance documents and Exemplar DMPs — will be provided!
The workshop is open to CLA members only; you can join the Association or renew your membership through Cambridge Core.

- Jorge Emilio Rosés Labrada is Assistant Professor of Indigenous Language Sustainability and Linguistics at the University of Alberta Department of Linguistics. Since 2012, he has led several documentation and description projects with Indigenous languages of South and North America: Mako and Piaroa (Sáliban), Kwak'wala and Makah (Wakashan), Sapé and Arutani (isolates). The main focus of these projects has been the creation of archived audiovisual corpora of linguistic and ethnographic data that can facilitate in-depth synchronic and diachronic linguistic research on these languages and be mobilized in the production of teaching materials for use in ongoing language revitalization and maintenance efforts. Additionally, he has been involved in rescuing legacy corpora for these and other languages such as Popti’ (Mayan) and in student and community-member training in language documentation. From 2018-2019, he served as co-chair of the Linguistic Society of America’s Committee on Endangered Languages and their Preservation (CELP) and currently serves as chair of the joint Ethics-CELP award committee for the Excellence in Community Linguistics Award.
