Some grant proposals (especially for large government grants) require data management plans, which serve many purposes (save time, increase impact, communicate, organize, resolve controversies, etc.).
Impact metrics help with quantitative evaluation of academic productivity and your work’s influence in the field. The information can be used to demonstrate your work’s significance to funders and NDSU. The top journals and researchers can also be identified with metrics.
The Office of Institutional Research and Analysis has specific data about NDSU’s student populations and about the university.
NDSU faculty, staff, and students can use Qualtrics to create web-based surveys and conduct statistical analysis.
NDSU subject librarians can assist with designing and implementing a strategy for finding and evaluating relevant materials and can help find grants, collaborators, literature, data, and tools to manage/share your results.
