What is a Data Management Plan?
Data Management Plans (DMP's) outline what a researcher is going to do with their data during and after the research is concluded. DMP's should include a description of:
- the types of data that will be created
- the standards and metadata that will be used with the data
- how these data will be accessed and shared
- policies and provisions for the reuse of the data
- plans for the long term archiving of the data
