A data management plan (DMP) is a written document describing the nature and structure of the data you will likely use or produce in the course of research, along with your strategies for dealing with it throughout and after your project.
A successful DMP should answer the following:
One of the simplest and most effective ways to create a DMP is by visiting DMPTool.org -
UTSA is an institutional partner of DMPTool so you can login to access the UTSA customized DMPTool and save your plans, access UTSA-specific information & resources, and request a review of your DMP by a member of the Data Management Services team. Simply choose "University of Texas at San Antonio” as your institution and login with your abc123 credentials.
The DMPTool supports most federal and several non-profit and private funding agencies that require DMPs as part of the grant application, providing templates that meet the various requirements and streamlining the DMP creation process. If your funder isn't listed, there is also an option for a generic plan.
