Having a frequently updated data management plan (DMP) is good practice and a requirement for all researchers at Royal Holloway.
The best place to start when writing a DMP is the DMPonline tool from the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), which:
- Has templates for most of the UK, EU and US funders, plus a generic template suitable for any project
- Provides expert guidance from the DCC for each section of each template along with guidance from the funder where available
- Exports in a variety of formats, including PDF and Microsoft Word
Guidance for using DMPonline with your Royal Holloway single sign on credentials can be found Here
