This guide will provide guidance & resources for researchers in the College of Engineering who are writing a Data Management Plan.

DMP Help

A Data Management Plan Review Service pilot has been established to support the development of strong, effective data management plans (DMPs) by College of Engineering researchers. To submit your DMP, please send it, along with a short description of your project or the method section of your grant, and the agency (including directorate and/or division) you are applying to, to this email address:

Introduction

Data Curation - Why should you care?

"By learning how to preserve and share digital materials so others can effectively reuse them, you will maximise the impact of your research" (Digital Curation Centre)

Data that you generate with or for your research should be available to other researchers to help verify and advance your work. By becoming a good steward of your data, you will have a framework in place to help you keep track of your data, your data will be citable, you can help your graduate students achieve their goals quicker, and you will be helping future researchers in your field of study.
