Research Data Management

This toolkit offers guidance for researchers, librarians, and administrators on managing research data

Creating a Data Management Plan


Data Management Plans should include:

  • data types,
  • related tools, software, and/or code,
  • metadata standards,
  • data preservation, access, and associated timelines,
  • access, distribution, or reuse considerations,
  • oversight of data management (roles and responsibilities), and
  • planned research output details.

Data Management Plans will require listing at least one intended repository for publicly accessible data. Repositories should follow FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable.)
