Write a Data Management Plan
Research Data Management
Research data are the digital information, structured by a formal methodology, for the purpose of creating new research or scholarship and which are commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings.
The Georgia Tech Library can help you manage and archive your research data. Library services include assistance with writing a data management plan, data management training, and data archiving for openly accessible data.
Data Management Plans
While it's good practice for all research projects to develop and follow a data management plan (DMP), you may be required to include a DMP with your grant application, depending on your funding agency. We are available to review your plans before you submit your grant proposal. The DMPTool can be used to help you develop your plan.
Data Sharing & Archiving
Many funding agencies require the sharing and preservation of research data. In addition to meeting funder requirements, sharing your data increases the potential for research impact. Review the Registry of Research Data Repositories to determine whether an appropriate discipline repository is available to you.
