Data Management at USU

Writing a Data Management Plan

The first step in data management is to write a data management plan describing how research data will be generated, stored, and made accessible. Often research grant applications require such a plan.

For assistance in writing an effective data management plan, see the DMPTool.

With the DMPTool, you can:

  • Create ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies;
  • Meet requirements for data management plans;
  • Get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data management plans;
  • Learn about resources and services available at USU to fulfill grant data management requirements.
