California Digital Library worked with other organizations to develop a DMPTool to help researchers meet these new requirements.
DMPTool - The Data Management Plan Tool allows researchers to:
Recommended documents from the UCI Office of Research that support submission of the NSF Data Management Plan include:
See Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) Chapter II.C.2.j for full implementation information.
Send questions regarding the NSF Data Management Plan to: Danielle Kane (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The UCI Libraries stand ready to assist grantees in identifying the options for sharing research data in an institutional or discipline-specific repository. Contact your subject librarian or the UCI Data Librarian (email@example.com).
Investigators are expected to share with other researchers, at no more than incremental cost and within a reasonable time, the primary data, samples, physical collections and other supporting materials created or gathered in the course of work under NSF grants. Grantees are expected to encourage and facilitate such sharing in the NSF Award & Administration Guide (AAG) Chapter VI.D.4.
Links to data management requirements and plans relevant to specific Directorates, Offices, Divisions, Programs, or other NSF units, are provided here. If guidance specific to the program is not provided, then the requirements established in Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), January 2018 apply. Particulars for the plan will depend on what NSF refers to as the "community of interest" -- essentially the domain or discipline to which the project proposal is relevant.
Please note that if a specific program solicitation provides guidance on preparation of data management plans, such guidance must be followed.
