Sample Data Management and Sharing Plans

Below are examples of data management and sharing plans that are helpful as guides for your own data management and sharing plan.

When developing your own plan or choosing an existing template, consider your own project needs. 


Use the DMP Tool to follow a template and easily build your own data management plan:

  1. Sign in to the DMPTool here. 
  2. You will be prompted to complete your profile if this is your first time.
  3. Select Create New DMP from the menu. You will be presented with a number of templates to choose from.
  4. The tool will walk you through each section of the template, allowing you to edit, format, share, and preview your content online. Once your content is complete, you can Export the final version as a PDF, as a .docx, or print a hard copy.
