Data management plans (DMPs) describe the data management activities for a research group, researcher, or research project. They are structured documents created in advance of collecting data, and describe practices that will be followed over the course of the data lifecycle.
Researchers can also use DMPs as living documents that describe their overall data management practices in detail, and are refined over time.
The DMPTool is an online platform guiding DMP development according to the requirements of specific funding agencies. Texas A&M University researchers log in with their NetID and passwords.
