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.

Funder, Journal or Agency Requirements

While all data management plans share certain common considerations, funders, journals, professional societies or relevant agencies may have unique requirements or expectations for data management plans (DMPs) that you should know. Check the following lists before getting started with your DMP.
