Data Management Plans

Most funders now require data management planning as a part of the application process. They want to know:

  • What will you collect?
  • How will you store it?
  • How will organize it?
  • How will you collaborate?
  • How will you document it?
  • How will you protect it?
  • How will you share it?

You can get started by using the DMPTool to draft your plan. The DMPTool lets you choose your funder and program and will provide a template to answer the specific questions that agency wants. Washington University has boiler-plate language ready to go.

Data Services will be glad to review your data management plan when it’s completed to be sure you addressed all of the necessary issues.
