Make a Data Management Plan

Creating and implementing a data management plan (DMP) saves time, increases research impact, improves accessibility, addresses privacy and confidentiality issues, safeguards data, and ensures funder compliance. Use the DMPTool to view example DMPs and create a DMP that meets the needs of funders.

Visit the Data Management Library Guide to learn more about DMPs and the DMPTool.

The organization and storage of data is essential in the research process. LabArchives is an electronic notebook that enables researchers to capture, manage, store, and share information and data. LabArchives also facilitates collaboration amongst researchers within a lab, institution, and with external stakeholders.
