Manage Your Research Data: Data Management Plans & Funder Guidelines

Resources to help you prepare your data for open access and archiving

Data Management Plans

Data management plans (DMPs) are documents that outline what will be done with the research data during and after the research project. Many federal agencies, some funding agencies, and some journals now require a data management plan be submitted as part of your grant proposal.
