DMP Tips & Examples

Last month Carly Strasser wrote a Data Pub blog post with tips for creating high-quality data management plans and links to some example two-page NSF data management plans.

The tips were:

  • Take advantage of experts (i.e., librarians)
  • Take advantage of institutional resources
  • Think carefully about your data (e.g., file formats, metadata)
  • Think carefully about your data workflow
  • Know exactly where your data will be stored, during and after the research project
  • Create your data management plan early and review it regularly throughout the research project

These links included examples of NSF data management plans for life sciences research:
