About this guide

A data management plan (DMP) is a document that describes how data will be collected, described, documented, shared, and preserved as part of a project. DMPs may be created for personal use, as part of laboratory groups with multiple users, or federally mandated and required for funding agencies to distribute awards. This guide is intended to serve the research community at SUNY ESF as a resource to learn basic data management practices, learn about new tools to help with the creation of DMPs, and also to connect researchers with librarians who can help with planning and managing data.
