Guide to DMPOnline

A data management plan (DMP) describes how research data will be managed throughout the research lifecycle. This includes what research data will be created and/or collected, how it will be managed during the project, and how it will be shared and preserved at the end of the project. It should typically also describe any potential legal or ethical issues that need to be addressed.

Newcastle University encourages all research proposals to include a DMP, and most research funders require a DMP to be completed as part of the funding application process. All PGRs are required to have a DMP for their project proposal and annual progression.

DMPonline is a web-based tool to help you write your DMP, and the steps below will guide you through the process of writing your DMP using DMPonline.
