Workshop: Crafting a Data Management Plan



You are invited to attend a workshop on the newly-available Data Management Planning (DMP) Tool. The workshop will will take place Monday, Oct. 22 from 10-11am in the IC Classroom in Green Library.

Many funding agencies - including NEH Office of Digital Humanities and the NSF's Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences directorate - are now requiring data management plans to be included with funding requests. The Data Management Planning Tool (DMP Tool) puts at your fingertips all the information you need to write the data management plan for your next research grant proposal. This online tool includes:

  • Current funding agency requirements
  • Help text with suggestions and guidelines on composing each plan section
  • Links to Stanford-specific guidance, as well as general guidance from funding agencies and information about best practices
  • Suggested answer text for those interested in preserving data in the Stanford Digital Repository
  • The ability to track, edit, share (via pdf link), and export your plan

The workshop will also include information about Stanford University Library's new Data Management Services web site and the kinds of help you can find there, as well information about the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). The workshop will be given by Amy Hodge, Science Data Librarian, but is appropriate for any Stanford researcher with data management needs or questions about data management plans or the Stanford Digital Repository.

All are welcome. You may sign up for the workshop in advance at or feel free to just show up.

Amy Hodge, Science Data Librarian, Branner Earth Sciences Library
