It’s spring, and for many of us that means the travel season has begun. There are upcoming conferences and meetings, and of course the summer field season is approaching rapidly. Traveling with your computer has become the norm because of the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks (WiFi), meaning communication channels stay open with family, friends, professors, and work. This level of communication makes travel less isolating (and perhaps less relaxing ) as it once was.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has made good the announcement in last May’s press release to require a data management plan with every NSF proposal. You will be happy to know that writing a data management plan is not difficult.
