Data Management Plan Consultation Group

Yale University Library and Information Technology Services are pleased to offer consultation services to assist you in creating the Data Management Plans (DMP) that are required for NSF and some NEH grant proposals.

In the case of the NSF and NEH, Data Management Proposals are 2 page sections in your grant proposal that outline the kinds of data that you are going to collect and how you are going to store and share them. Different groups within these organizations have more guidelines for data management plans, depending on standards and practices within disciplines.

The DMP Consultation Group at Yale University is made up of librarians and ITS professionals who can help guide you through the process of putting together your plan and finding Yale resources to fulfill your data management needs. These services include:

Refer

The Data Management Planning Consultation Group can refer you to appropriate services within the Yale University Library, ITS, or external partners that may help meet your data management needs.

Review

The Data Management Planning Consultation Group can review a plan you’ve written to make sure it adheres to agency and directorate guidelines and accurately reflects service or resource commitments from the Yale University Library and ITS. The DMPCG cannot state whether your DMP will be sufficient for an award to be granted.

Interview & outline

The Data Management Planning Consultation Group can interview you or your team and create an outline of a data management plan based on the interview. The DMPCG cannot state whether your DMP will be sufficient for an award to be granted.

Pre- and post-award consultation

The Data Management Planning Consultation Group can interview you or your team and provide guidance with regard to metadata formats, naming conventions, database design, preservation and sharing options, and other data management considerations.

If you would like more information about the service, or would like to book a consultation appointment, please fill out the request form.

 

Data management planning overview

The National Science Foundation now requires grant applicants to submit a two page "data management plan" document.

The overviews in this guide should help you to consider the content of this data management planning document. Data management plans can also serve as good templates for considering the stages your data will go through and what, if any, will need to be archived for long-term storage.


Some data management planning tools will be highlighted on this page. If you have specific questions about data management plans or the data management tool, please contact the DMP group for a consultation.
