Research Data Management: Plan

This guide provides an overview of research data management for University of Regina researchers.

Data Management Plans (DMPs)

A Data Management Plan (DMP) is a document created by a researcher that outlines organization, storage, and sharing research data throughout the life of the project. A DMP is a living document that can be revised to reflect changes in the course of your research. 
It is a high level plan: no private data is exposed.
Key tools:
DMP Assistant  (Portage initiative) to create DMPs for Canadian funders.
DMP Tool  to create DMPs for US funders, such as NIH or NSF.

 UBC Library provides additional information that will help you complete your DMP, with additional information about file naming conventions, computer file formats, metadata, and data storage.
