Data Management Plans

This guide provides resources to assist WSU faculty members and students who are creating strategies for storing, describing, and providing access to their research data.

What Is a Data Management Plan?

A data management plan is a statement on how you will handle your research data during your research project and after. Many funders require data management plans to be submitted with funding requests. Beyond funding agency requirements, the creation of an effective data management plan will help you to preserve data for your own use and to share your findings with colleagues.
