Many funding agencies, including the NIH, require that proposals include a data management and sharing plan (DMSP). We recommend using the California Digital Library's DMPTool to create your plan.
With DMPTool you can create competitive and comprehensive data management plans. It provides step-by-step guidance for creating your own DMSP, including templates and sample plans to help you address requirements specific to Columbia and your funding sources (NSF, NIH, NEH, DOE, IMLS and others).
