Many key granting organizations, like NSF, NIH, NEH and more, now require submitters to include a Data Management Plan as part of their application. In short, these plans outline what steps the applicant will take to collect, safeguard, archive, and make available the data used for the research in question.
This guide lays out practical considerations and information to aid you in preparing your Data Management Plan, and leads you to a Data Management Plan Tool that you can use to create your plan. You can see some more background on this issue, or get started by selecting a tab at the top of the page.
Good luck in your application!
