What is Data Management Plan?
Data Management Plan (DMP) is a written document that describes what data will be generated in the research and how the data will be managed throughout and beyond the research lifecycle. It is a live document that should be reviewed and updated regularly throughout the course of the project. A proper DMP not only helps researchers to comply with funders' data plan requirements, but also allows them to think through their research data workflow at the early stage of a research project.
Why DMP Matters?
Researchers are encouraged to have a DMP for their research project to:
comply with funders' requirements on DMP
Funders increasingly require a DMP as part of grant applications
plan for resources and tools in advance
avoid unnecessary data duplication
increase research efficiency
