Funding bodies increasingly require their grant-holders to produce data management plans, both during the bid-preparation stage and after funding has been secured.
DMPonline is the DCC's data management planning tool. In addition to the questions included in the DCC's Checklist for a Data Management Plan, it also contains useful guidance on how to prepare a data management plan and carry it through to execution.
The tool has three main functions
To help create and maintain different versions of Data Management Plans. To provide useful guidance on data management issues and how to meet research funders' requirements. To export attractive and useful plans in a variety of formats.
