This poster presents the preliminary results from a survey on the data management practices of graduate students. We investigate what graduate students know about data management from the technical aspects such as the familiarity and use of tools and technologies along with their participation and familiarity with data standards and policies. Preliminary data shows that graduate students lack awareness of data management policies, technologies, and practices when it comes to storing, accessing, and sharing data. The aim of this work is to provide insight on the data literacy needs of graduate students.
