Other Resources

Data Management

Duke Library has prepared a Data Management Guide. The guide provides step by step instructions on how to write a data plan for NSF. The guide will assist PIs submitting proposals to NSF and other agencies that require data management plans (such as NEH Digital Humanities grants).

The Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) also provides substantial resources for creating data management plans.

NSF Data Management Plan Requirements: Beginning January 18, 2011, proposals submitted to NSF must include a supplementary document of no more than two pages labeled "Data Management Plan" (DMP).
