The guide can be used as an introduction to data management plans (DMPs) or as a reference guide for those already in the process of writing a DMP.
The Iowa State University Library also provides access to the DMPTool which can help you write a data management plan. DMPTool offers templates for most agencies as well as some sample DMPs (the quality of the samples varies).
This guide was updated over the summer of 2015. The update includes recent and anticipated policy changes, new navigation and organization, and inclusion of DMPTool. Due to the changing environment around data management requirements the information, especially in the "Requirements by agency" section are subject to change as new information becomes available.
