Research Data Management

A well-written Data Management Plan (DMP) will help win your award 

Data Management Plans (DMPs) are easy to create and most are only a couple pages long and easy to write. Simply describe the data you will create or acquire; how you will manage, describe, analyze, and store those data; and your sharing and preservation mechanisms at the end of your project.

The ASU Libraries provides access to resources and services designed to help you write your Data Management Plan. This Guide provides:

  • Information on data requirements
  • A DMP Checklist to help you get started
  • Guidance on best practices for citing data sets, data management, and sharing and storage of data
  • A link to Discipline-specific digital repositories

Why are DMPs important?

Most major grant funding agencies now require that a Data Management Plan accompany all grant proposals including the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the National Endowment for Humanities Office of Digital Humanities. Additionally an emerging number of academic journals also require openly accessible data for submitted articles. Even if not required it is still an important practice to follow to ensure your research data is preserved, accessible, and discoverable.
