Data Management Plan (DMPTool) Training Coming This Fall

This fall, the OER will host a DMPTool training for COE faculty. Information on the DMPTool training will be available soon. Data management plans (DMPs) are now becoming a standard part of grant proposals for most funding agencies. The DMP should address the entire life cycle of the data. Some components of a DMP include data types, metadata, legal and ethical issues, data sharing, and data preservation.

The DMPTool helps you through the process of generating a comprehensive DMP tailored to specific funding agency requirements. The DMPTool also allows multiple users to access the plan during the development process, so other members of the grant team can provide input. Once you have created a DMP template, it can be saved for use on subsequent grant proposals. A fun caricature of what not to do is shown in this YouTube video by the New York University Health Sciences Library Data Sharing and Management Snafu in 3 Short Acts courtesy of DMPTool Trainer Hannah Norton, UF Reference and Liaison Librarian.
