New data management plan tool available

November 22nd, 2011 by

The University of California Curation Center (UC3) at the California Digital Library has produced a template tool for those who need to create data management plans (DMPs) for grant submissions. Starting this year, the NSF has joined other agencies in requiring that a data management plan be submitted with every new grant application; find out more about data management plans, including links to lists of agencies requiring them and lists of data repositories, on the library webpage about DMPs.

The DMP tool is available here: https://dmp.cdlib.org/

To get started, simply select “University of California, Davis” as your campus and create a new login. The DMPTool supports data management plans and funder requirements across the disciplines, including the humanities and physical, medical, and social sciences, and includes multiple agency requirements.

The DMPTool is open-source, freely available, and easily configurable to reflect an institution’s local policies and information. Users of the DMPTool can view sample plans, preview funder requirements, and view the latest changes to their plans. It permits the user to create an editable document for submission to a funding agency, and can accommodate different versions as funding requirements change.

If you have any questions about using the DMPtool, or any other aspect of data management, contact your subject liaison librarian or one of the librarians listed here.
