Creating Your Data Management Plan

Creating a data management plan (DMP) for each research project helps set out the parameters for how you will organise, store, share, and preserve your research data during each stage of the research project.

Portage, a collaborative Canadian library initiative in support of data management, has developed an online bilingual tool, DMP Assistant, to assist researchers in developing plans.


Accessing the DMP Assistant

As funding agencies adopt data management plan requirements, individualised templates will be created to support the specific requirements of the funders.
