Data Management Plan

Learn how to write a DMP

Data management plans (DMP) are a growing requirement from funders and from the university. A DMP briefly outlines what you are planning to do with your research data before, during and after your project.

A DMP therefore often covers topics such as data type, collection, storage, archiving and governance. If you need help writing a DMP, the Digital Research Team can provide you with advice and guidance. We suggest contacting us early-on or start creating your DMP using DMPonline and request feedback from us, once you drafted your DMP.
