Data Management Planning Tool (DMPTool)

Data Management Planning Tool (DMPTool)
Definition: 

The DMPTool allows researchers to create ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies; meet funder requirements for data management plans; get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data; and learn about resources and services available at any institution to help fulfill the data management requirements for a grant. Librarians can assist in the data management process by teaching researchers how to use the DMP Tool and helping them through the various steps of data management that are required by a specific grant.
