Data Management Plan

Increasingly grant sponsors and collaborating agencies are requiring Data Management Plans to address data interpretability, renderability and sustainability in a way that assures covering the entire curation lifecycle of the projects/data they aim to archive.

Each agency has slightly different guidelines so the best practice is to use the DMP Tool. Select your sponsor for the most current template to load. Be sure to download your plan at the end of the tool in Microsoft Word (.docx) format before sending it to (or directly to the SPO officer you're working with).

Each NSF Directorate has its own requirements.

NIH has a resource page to help you understand their requirements. Principles and Best Practices for Protecting Participant Privacy. Be sure to check out the 12 Days of Data Management and Sharing Tips & Resources, and New Resources Available on Protecting Participant Privacy When Sharing Scientific Data
