Compiling a data management plan

You can use an online tool like the Dmponline  from the Digital Curation Centre in the UK and this is recommended as you can share your plan with others in your research group and they can also contribute to the plan. This software will also allow you to manage your plan online and they have templates for some of the big Funders in the UK.

To use the tool you need not be based in the UK but you must register. This is simply done by filling in your email and your institution. There is a drop down list of Institutions and if your institution is not listed there, simply use “other institution” and fill in the name.    You can register and create an account and the software will prompt you through the process. You can also manage your plans online. There is a short video introduction on the home screen that will show you how to use Dmponline.
