Funding bodies increasingly require their grant-holders to produce Data Management Plans (DMP), both during the bid-preparation stage and after funding has been secured. DMPonline has been produced to help research teams respond to this requirement, and any expectations that their institution or others may apply.
The DCC has worked closely with research funders and universities to produce a tool that assists researchers to produce an effective data management plan to cater for the whole lifecycle of a project, from bid-preparation stage through to completion.

How the tool works
There are a number of templates within the tool that represent the requirements of different funders and institutions. Users are asked three questions at the outset so we can determine the appropriate template to display. Guidance is provided to help you interpret and answer the questions. This guidance is provided by researcher funders, universities and disciplines.
