Data Management Plans

Research data management begins with a good data management plan (DMP). Although not everyone needs a formal DMP, best practices for data planning have emerged in connection with the formal DMPs now required by so many grant-giving agencies.

This page provides information and resources to help you develop a data management plan. While the materials are geared toward fulfilling requirements of formal DMPs, they are just as helpful for those interested in developing a less formal plan for personal use.
