Before you begin
It is worthwhile thinking through the data related aspects of your research before you get underway. Data management planning, ethical approval, and data protection considerations are often essential prerequisites for a research project. This page will tell you about writing a data management plan (DMP), funder requirements and the benefits of data management planning. Samples of DMPs from successful real grant applications are available, and if you need advice on writing your own DMP, we're happy to help: get in touch via the "Contact us" button.
