DMP Review Service
The Libraries' Data Management Services Group is now offering to review drafts of data management plans before they must be turned in to the Office for Sponsored Programs.
We request a lead time of one (1) week; drafts can be sent to CUdatamgmt@lists.clemson.edu and will be kept confidential within our small team of librarians that are familiar with data management issues. If you have any questions about this service, please email the previously-mentioned list or Megan Sheffield (email@example.com).
Funding Agency Guidelines
Funding agencies have different policies on what needs to be included in a Data Management Plan (DMP). Note that even if your funding agency does not require a data management plan, creating one will assist you in managing your research.
The following resources will help you find DMP requirements by funding agency:
The DMPTool, which allows you to create ready-to-use Data Management Plans for specific funding agencies, maintains this list of requirements by funding agency. As new Data Management Plan Guidelines become available, they will be added to this page and eventually to the DMPTool.
