About the DMP
A Data Management Plan en anglais (DMP) is a formal document presenting the way research data will be managed during and after a research project.
Creating a DMP will help you manage your data at all steps of the lifecycle of your research project.
Some funders already request DMPs. Even without any requirements, you will benefit from planning early in your project the management of your data, as it will help preventing data loss and will ease effective data sharing among the scientific community.
To make sure you cover all the essential topics in your DMP, consider using the following checklist: DLCM_Checklist.pdf
There are also great tools available to help you building a DMP:
