Research Data Management: Data Management Plans

A guide to define and explore Research Data Management

Data Management Plans (DMPs)

A data management plan (DMP) is a written document that describes the data used within a researcher project. This includes: 

  • the data acquired and generated during the course of the research project;
  • how the data will be managed, described, analysed and stored;
  • the mechanisms used to share and preserve the research data.
