Grant proposal needs a data management plan? DMPTool can help.

Many grant funding agencies now require researchers to plan ahead for data preservation and sharing as part of their research projects. To aid with these requirements, researchers at UT now have a tool that makes the process a little easier. The University Libraries offers the DMPTool created by the California Digital Library, which allows researchers to walk through the process of writing a data management plan for twenty different grant agencies, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Institutes of Health, and all directorates of the National Science Foundation. Also provided are links to institution-specific guidelines.

For more information on or a demonstration of the DMPTool, visit the Libraries’ Data Management Guide (, or contact Chris Eaker, Data Curation Librarian (, 974-4404).
