Many federal and private funders require a Data Management Plan, or DMP, as part of the grant application process. The University Libraries at the University of South Carolina provide a number of resources and services to faculty and students who need to write plans, including online guides, sample DMPs, and consultations. This presentation, from a workshop titled “Data Management Plans and DMPTool,” walks researchers through the history and components of Data Management Plans and exposes them to available resources, including DMPTool, an online tool that helps researchers write plans that meet specific funder requirements.
