Data Management Plans

A Data Management Plan (DMP) is a formal document created at the beginning of a research project to outline how you plan to collect, document, store, and share your data through the lifecycle of a research project.

Creating a DMP is a best practice in data stewardship and can help researchers stay organized and predict resource needs. The inclusion of a DMP is sometimes required by research funding agencies.

Creating a DMP

The Portage DMP Assistant is an online tool to help you prepare a research data management plan. Create an account and use the templates to guide you in answering the questions and creating a data management plan.
