Data Management Plans

A data management plan (DMP) is a written document describing what you will do with your data during and after a research project. NIH along with other funding agencies, require a DMP to be part of the application.

Writing a complete data management plan to fulfill funding agency requirements can be daunting, but there are tools and services available to you to make the process easier and the results more effective.  

  • Use the Data Management Plan Tool (DMPTool) Dartmouth site for an outline of your plan customized to the granting agency, with context sensitive help on such questions as appropriate data archives.   Select Get Started, Dartmouth, login using WebAuth, and start creating a plan using the outline that matches your funding agency.
