Data Management Plans with DeiC DMP

The Online tool DeiC DMP helps researchers write data management plans - plans describing how project data are generated, collected, stored, used and reused, and how others can access the data at a later stage.

The tool works by asking a number of questions about the handling of data in the project. Based on the responses the tool generates the plan. The plan is built up depending on your area of research, and the possible funding body. Plans in DeiC DMP can therefore be customised and contains guides and templates from different funding organisations, such as EU/Horizon.
