Data management plans (DMPs) are required by the majority of federal agencies and private organizations that fund research projects. Each entity has its own policies for the content of DMPs. To help researchers find these policies and create DMPs that meet the requirements included in them, we recommend using DMPTool.
DMPTool facilitates peer collaboration when preparing a DMP. Moreover, it serves as a database for finding and retrieving the requirements established by different funding agencies for this kind of document. DMPTool also provides access to guides and reference documentation produced by innumerable entities about better data management practices and how to prepare a strong DMP.
