DMP 101: Introduction to Data Management Plans

DMP 101: Introduction to Data Management Plans Online

Research Data Management Online Short-Seminar

Many key granting organizations, like NSF, NIH, NEH and more, now require submitters to include a Data Management Plan (DMP) as part of their application. In short, these plans outline the best practices in data management that you will apply throughout the course of your grant. By creating a data management plan for your data at the beginning of the project, you save time and effort later on.

This session will provide an overview of the components of typical data management plans.
