Learn to Use DMPTool

Setting up a Data Management Plan

UK Libraries offers help planning and writing a Data Management Plan (DMP). We also provide access to DMPTool. DMPTool will guide you through including the required elements in a data management plan providing detail for different granting agencies.

Searching for Publicly Available Data Management Plans

Public DMPs are plans created using the DMPTool and shared publicly by their owners. They are not vetted for quality, completeness, or adherence to funder guidelines. You may find it useful to browse through these guides and see how other researchers have responded to some of the questions.

Open Science Framework (OSF)

Open Science Framework is a platform that allows researchers to host their projects. Researchers can also register their scientific studies using the OSF features.

  1. Share projects across institutions.
  2. Hosts non-funded projects.
  3. Protocol Publishing.

OSF has a Wiki that details what OSF stands for and how it can be used by different user groups.
