Data management plans are researchers' written strategies outlining how they will collect and take care of their data during the life of a project and what approaches they will take for sharing and preserving their data at the end of a project. Funders, including the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, are increasingly requiring the submission of a data management plan with a grant application.


This session will introduce:


The purpose and importance of a data management plan.

The basic components of a data management plan.

Funder requirements related to data management planning.

DMPTool, a free online tool that guides researchers through the creation of a plan.
