U.S. funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health require researchers to supply detailed, cost-effective plans for managing research data, called Data Management Plans.
Several universities and organizations are developing the DMPTool to help researchers meet these new requirements. In specific, the DMPTool will help researchers:
> Create ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies
> Meet requirements for data management plans
> Get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data management plan
> Learn about resources and services available at your institution to fulfill the data management requirements of their grants
