This guide is designed to walk you through some of the major steps in working with research data, from creating a data management plan, to finding data for research, and finally to archiving and sharing data at the end of a project.
UCSF CMS DMP Templates
UCSF has created a working draft template of a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Data Management Plan (DMP) as part of an ongoing effort to streamline access to CMS data. To access the template please contact Victoria So at firstname.lastname@example.org
The DMPTool is a free, open-source, online application that helps researchers create data management plans. The DMPTool provides a click-through wizard for creating a DMP that complies with funder requirements. It also has direct links to funder websites, help text for answering questions, and resources for best practices surrounding data management.
