Data Management

According to NASA's Data Management Policy:  "All proposals or project plans submitted to NASA for scientific research funding will be required to include a DMP. The DMP should describe whether and how data generated through the course of the proposed research will be shared and preserved (including timeframe), or explain why data sharing and/or preservation are not possible or scientifically appropriate. At a minimum, DMPs must describe how data sharing and preservation will enable validation of published results or how such results could be validated if data are not shared or preserved."

 
Get started >> Draft your DMP and the libraries' Data Management Services Team will review your written DMP and provide comments, feedback, and advice in a timely mannor.
  1. Review the NASA's requirements for Data Management Plans
  2. Use the U of M DMP template to write your DMP
  3. Submit your DMP for feedback to datarepo@umn.edu
