Basics of a Data Management Plan
A data management plan is simply a 1-2 page summary explaining how you are planning to manage the data gathered in the course of your research project. Most funding agencies are asking researchers to submit a data management plan as part of their grant application. Always consult the specific data management requirements for your funding agency to write your data management.
