COVID - 19 Service Status

Data Services has shifted to virtual services for the Summer 2020 sessions. During our normal working hours, we will respond to requests via e-mail and will attempt to offer guidance via Zoom when necessary.


DMP Tool

The DMP Tool Online is a web-based tool to help you build your data management plan. It provides step-by-step guidance and information specific to many United States granting agencies and their directorates. 

NYU affiliates can sign into the DMP Tool using their netID and password from the institutional log-in page. Select "New York University" from the drop down menu and click "Go!"


DMP Online

DMPonline is an UK-based tool developed by the Digital Curation Centre in close collaboration with research funders and universities. This tool is another online utility that assists researchers in producing an effective DMP to cater to the whole lifecycle of a project. There are many templates in the tool that represent the requirements of a diverse selection of funders and institutions. Users are asked three questions to determine the appropriate template to display; upon selection, guidance is provided to help researchers interpret and answer the questions within the template.

All that is necessary to use this tool is an account, which anyone can sign up for. There is an extensive user community that reports bugs and requests new features directly on GitHub. The past versions are also stored and are accessible for those using the earlier features.
