Data Management Plan (DMP)

The purpose of the Data Management Plan (DMP) is to define the basis for successful management of the project data, records, and all related information. This document contains instructional text which should be removed prior to finalising the DMP.

Place ‘N/A’ in sections which are not applicable to your DMP – your plan is a living document and should be updated throughout the course of your project.

A Data Management Plan (DMP) is a tool that makes you carefully think about your data collection process. Investing time in thinking about managing your research data at the start of your project helps to you to

  • keep track of your research progress more efficiently;
  • easily find and understand the data you created earlier;
  • prepare your research data for future use (e.g., data publication, verification purposes or reuse of your data by others);
  • comply with ethical guidelines, and institutional, funder and journal requirements

Research Data Management Unit, USM Library has developed a format for an individual plan.
