This module introduces data management plans and the considerations that should be made during the planning stage of a project. After an introduction to funding body requirements and the benefits of sharing data to research, the DMPonline tool is promoted as the prefered method of completing a data management plan, as required by funding bodies. Finally, a brief breakdown of the content of data management plans and advice on completing them is included.
