Data Management Planning
Do you require a Data Management Plan as part of your funding application?
- Many research funders require data management plans or 'technical appendices' to be incorporated into a grant application. See the funder policy pages if you're not sure.
- Producing a data management checklist will help you assess what your requirements are.
- A checklist will act as an aid if you need to create a data management plan, and even where this is not the case, a checklist can save you time, by helping you consider potential issues associated with storage, backup, metadata, copyright, IP, ethical issues, best formats for data creation, access and control, any sharing requirements, and long-term preservation.
