Digital Curation Centre – Checklist for a Data Management Plan (v4.0)
To provide guidance and questions to consider when making a data management plan.
Funding bodies increasingly require grant-holders to develop and implement Data Management and Sharing Plans (DMPs). Plans typically state what data will be created and how, and outline the plans for sharing and preservation, noting what is appropriate given the nature of the data and any restrictions that may need to be applied. The Data Curation Centr (DCC) has analysed UK funders’ policies and developed various data management resources. For a list see here:
