The DMP Assistant (https://assistant.portagenetwork.ca/) is a free online tool for preparing data management plans. It offers Canadian-made guidance in data stewardship and walks researchers step-by-step through key questions about data management.
The UVic Libraries has created it's own template for you to use in the DMP Assistant, with guidance tailored to our university.
DMPs are written plans which clearly articulates the strategies and tools you will implement to effectively manage your research data. They are considered essential to research data management (RDM), and are now requirements for applications for Tri-Agency funded research. The Tri-Agencies endorse use of the DMP Assistant to create DMPs.
