A data management plan (DMP) is a framework document that enables the various participants of a research project to define all the tasks to be performed concerning the management of the data produced and used in the project: storage, standards, sharing, possible reuses, archiving, copyright, etc.
Outlining responses to these different issues in a formal document enables the team to organize its work, to determine from the outset its various needs in terms of data collection and processing, as well as to anticipate resource requirements (storage, recruitment, software). Some of these costs may be eligible.
In general, the creation of a DMP offers an opportunity to formalize your data management practices.
Sciences Po has also drafted a DMP model adapted to its researchers' needs. It is downloadable in English and French, and also available online, on the OPIDoR tool. The questions mentioned in this DMP template are accompanied by tips and sample answers. Do not hesitate to contact the Data team for further assistance.
A DMP is required. It is considered a deliverable.
When? 6 months after the beginning of the project.

A DMP is not required.
However, the drafting of a DMP makes it possible to anticipate actions and resources.

Writing a DMP is not a requirement.
But why not try?
