Data Management Planning: Resources

This site contains information to help researchers create a solid data management plan for external funding requirements including NSF proposals.


If you are going to work independently on a data management plan, we have listed a range of resources to assist you. We highly recommend starting with the California Digital Library's DMPTool. You will be directed to create an account (free) and will then be asked a series of questions that will structure the DMP generated by the system.
