Creating Data Management Plans

Quick Start

Example plans

Build a plan from a template

DMP Tool is an online service that lets you write, share, and publish data management plans. Search public data management plans to get a sense of what peers in your field are submitting.

Use the DMP Tool to craft your plan in a template. You can save your plan and revise it later.
