Template: Data Management Plan [DMPTool]
A data management plan describes the data, code, and other research products you will produce and how you will format, document, store, share, and preserve them. Funding agencies and journals increasingly expect that you will, as much as possible, share data, code, and other products with other researchers. Many funding agencies and sponsors require a data management plan with each proposal, but any researcher or team will benefit from developing a data management plan. Developing a plan is an excellent way to identify useful and important records, optimize your data handling processes, and anticipate issues that may arise in publishing, archiving, and preservation. Log in to dmptool.org with your UMD credentials and start creating a data management plan using templates from both UMD and a variety of funders.
