To aid researchers in satisfying the data management requirement of funding agencies and write good data management plans, USU has partnered as a contributing institution in the DMPTool, developed by the University of California system, UC San Diego Libraries, DataONE, the Smithsonian Institution, and other organizations. With the use of the DMPTool, USU researchers can:

  • Create ready-to-use, requirement-compliant data management plans for specific funding agencies
  • Get step-by-step instructions and guidance for writing data management plans, including information about resources and services available at USU
  • View sample data management plans
