New Data Management Plan Template Available on DMPTool
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued its Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing (DMS Policy) to promote the management and sharing of scientific data generated from NIH-funded or conducted research. This policy will require the submission of Data Management and Sharing Plans at the time of grant application, effective January 25, 2023.
In response to this DMS Policy and using guidance from the NIH, we have created a Harvard Medical School Biomedical DMP Template on the DMPTool, a free, web-based tool to assist the creation of funder or university-specific plans. The DMP Template provides organization-specific guidance to create a relevant and useful data management plan for grants or other research projects.
While 2023 seems far away, we encourage you to start using this template for any DMP you may need to create.
