Research Data Management - Writing a Data Management Plan

Writing a Data Management Plan

A formal Data management plan is a required component of a grant proposal for most federal funding agencies and some private agencies as well. Each funding directorate has certain required headings that address many data management best practices


The DMPTool is a piece of software that will help you create your Data Management Plan. The DMPTool will walk you through the appropriate template for the granting agency and provides OSU-specific suggestions. The Ohio State University is a member to the DMPTool, allowing you to login with your name.#. Get started here
