DMPTool is a web application that helps researchers create a data management plan (DMP) for their grant application. It provides assistance throughout the process of writing a DMP, including advice about what to include in order to satisfy institutional as well as prominent granting agency requirements. Also included with the application are DMP templates from funding agencies and links to helpful resources. It also has direct links to funder websites, help text for answering questions, and data management best practices resources.
Per the DMPTool website, templates for data management plans are based on the specific requirements listed in funder policy documents. The DMPTool maintains these templates, however, researchers should always consult the program officers and policy documents directly for authoritative guidance. Sample plans are provided by a funder or another trusted party.
DMPTool was developed by a collaboration of university libraries, museums, and other organizations, and is ready-to-use by logging in with your CWRU ID.
