External funding agencies are increasingly requiring researchers to write effective Data Management Plans (DMPs) as part of their grant proposals. DMPs include information on how researchers plan to manage, store and preserve research data to meet funding agency requirements for their grant award. DMPTool is a free tool developed by the California Digital Library and provides guidance from specific funders who require DMPs. This workshop will guide researchers through the process of creating an account, using the tool individually or with internal/external collaborators and using locally developed guidance to include in DMPs. This workshop is open to Rowan faculty, students and staff.
