Data Management Planning made easy

DMPTlogoCreating a Data Management Plan (DMP) is now much simpler thanks to Syracuse University’s partnership in the DMPTool project.

Many funding agencies, particularly the National Science Foundation and The National Institutes of Health, require researchers to submit a Data Management Plan as part of their grant applications. A DMP is an outline of what the researcher will do with their data, both during and after the project.

The DMPTool is a step-by-step wizard that provides help text, resources, and suggested answers for each section of a DMP. It can save the time of researchers and help them meet funder requirements. Researchers can co-create plans with colleagues at SU and beyond, as well as save, export, and print their plans. The DMPTool supports all major funders and is updated when funders release new requirements.

For more information on accessing and using the DMPTool, please see the Library’s Data Management Planning guide or contact Research Data Services at
