Data Management Tool Launched by University of California Libraries and Partner Institutions

Important questions are challenging researchers today:  Where should their research data reside? How can they make the data discoverable by other investigators and repurposed in new ways?  Would allowing others to access the data help advance their fields or their careers?

The University of California and several other major research institutions have partnered to develop the DMPTool, a flexible online application to help researchers generate data management plans, simple but effective documents for ensuring good data stewardship.  These plans are increasingly being required by funders such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF).  The DMPTool supports data management plans and funder requirements across the disciplines, including the humanities and physical, medical, and social sciences.
