Why a Data Management Plan?

Having a plan for your research data is more than just a best practice; it is increasingly a requirement for grant funding and publishing. DMPs are formal documents that define the metadata and stewardship responsibilities associated with your data, ensuring that it can be understood and used long after the project is completed. It will address questions like:

  • How will you structure, name, and version your files?
  • What are your anticipated storage, backup, and security needs?
  • What legal, ethical, and intellectual property issues should be considered?
