UH Libraries Data Management Plan Resources

The Data Management Planning Tool, or DMPTool, is a resource that will help in the creation of a funding agency-specific data management plan for grant proposals.



A data management plan is a document that describes what a researcher will do with his or her research data both during a research project and after the completion of a project. The DMPTool enables University of Houston researchers to easily create a formal data management plan that can be inserted into a grant application, generate documentation on data management procedures for a project, or help new researchers and graduate students to plan for critical points in the data lifecycle, such as data sharing, preservation, reuse, and transitions.

With DMPTool, researchers can:

  • Create ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies
  • Meet funder requirements for data management plans
  • Get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data management plans
  • Walk through the steps necessary to create data management plans for several funders (NSF, NEH, NIH)

For more information on data management or the DMPTool, please contact Adam Townes.
