Writing a successful grant proposal can be difficult. Many funding bodies are requiring grant proposals to have a DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN. The Center for Digital Scholarship is here to help.

A data management plan describes how data will be collected, stored and shared. The Miami Libraries have joined a consortium that offers an online tool to help you write your own data management plan. Called DMPTool.org, it is customized with specific guidance for each of the major funder such as NSF and NIH. It will give you step-by-step guidance for completing your plan as well as providing sample plans for you to copy and build upon. You may then submit your plan for professional review before turning in your grant proposal. And best of all, it won’t cost you a cent! Just another service from Miami University Libraries.
