What is a Data Management Plan?

Data management plans (DMPs) are tools for helping you organize and manage your research data throughout the life of a project. Most NIH researchers are not yet required to write a DMP, with the exception of those working with genomics data that must write a data sharing plan. Eventually DMPs will be required for all NIH researchers but in the meantime they are simply a best practice. Check out the resources below to learn more about crafting your own DMP.
