Data management plans

Why and how you should create a data management plan

DMP Roadmap is the local system for data management plans at Lund University. With DMP Roadmap you can create and update a data management plan.

What is a data management plan?

A data management plan (DMP) is a document that provides a framework for what is to happen with data material during and after a research project. A data management plan describes how to collect, handle, organize, store and make research material available during the research process. And also how to preserve it after the end of the project. It should also include descriptions of the legal and ethical aspects of the research data management. 

DMP roadmap

DMP Roadmap is a locally developed tool. There are several other systems and tools for data management plans outside Lund University.
