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.
This tool, developed by the UC systems and California Digital Library, uses funder-specific templates to walk you through the creation of a data management plan. Log in using your WSU login credentials.
Overseen by WSU Libraries, Research Exchange is a digital repository of university research and educational materials. Depending on the size of your dataset/research materials, the repository may be a good option for preserving your materials and ensuring public access over time.
The WSU Libraries can provide assistance to faculty members who must create data management plans. Please take a look at this guide and contact the WSU Libraries or the Office of Research if you have any questions or would like further assistance.
