Need help creating a data management plan? Try the DMPTool

New MIT-customized tool helps researchers write plans to meet funder requirements

DMPTool logoDid you know that your funding agency likely requires you to share your research data? And that you may have to submit a data management plan (DMP) with your next grant application? The Libraries have a new tool to help.

The MIT Libraries have customized the DMPTool, a web-based tool that guides you through writing a DMP specific to a funder’s requirements. From within the DMPTool, you can:

  • Use DMP templates for specific funders (e.g., NSF, NIH, DOE, NEH, and many more)
  • Access MIT-specific information and resources related to data management
  • Save and reuse previous DMPs to build a DMP for your next proposal
  • Request feedback on your DMP from a member of the Libraries’ Data Management Services team to help strengthen your funding application

To get started, access the DMPTool, click “Log In,” and choose “Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)” as your institution to log in via Touchstone.

Want to learn more about the DMPTool or data management plans? Join us for an IAP session, Data Management Plans and the DMPTool, on Tuesday, January 26, or contact Data Management Services.
