Manage Your Research Data: Data Management Plans

This guide provides a primer on the fundamentals of data management.

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 and some private funding agencies require a DMP be submitted as part of your grant proposal. Whether required by funders or not, writing a DMP is a very helpful exercise that will improve the usefulness of your research data for yourself and others over the long term.
