Main content

A data management plan (DMP) describes how data in a research project will be collected, processed and made available. The Norwegian Research Council and Horizon 2020 require projects to submit a DMP. They and many scientific journals also require that the research data are made openly available to others. A DMP will help you to consider every aspect of sharing you data at an early point of the project and thereby save time in the publishing process

This course gives you a short introduction to what a data management plan is, why you need it, and how to write one.
