This is an annotated data management plan (DMP) template for Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) grant application data management plans.
This document (available in .pdf and .docx formats) was created using the DMPonline tool, which provides templates for structuring major research funders' DMPs. The document includes the guidance text provided in the tool, produced by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), the UK Data Service and the University of Sheffield Library.
All ESRC grant applicants generating data during their research have to include a data management plan with their Je-S grant application. the data management plan helps decide how research data will be managed throughout the research cycle and how best to prepare for data deposit with the UK Data Service, so they may be archived and shared for future reuse. The ESRC DMP is organised into nine themes that applicants should address, which are built into the DMPonline ESRC template.
For further information see UK Data Service - Data management planning for ESRC researchers and ESRC Data management plan: guidance for peer reviewers.
The DCC also provides guidance on Data management Plans and How to Develop a Data Management and Sharing Plan. Check the ESRC data sharing policy also.
