Data Management Plans

DMPs as formal documents that outline how data were managed during and post-project have become an important and often indispensable part of grant applications, as well as a good research practice. DSW brings a complex solution for creating high-quality DMPs in any discipline.

The Data Stewardship Wizard provides a simple way to create the DMP by filling the Questionnaire in a smart way. What does "smart way" mean? Based on your previous answers in the Questionnaire, only relevant questions for your case will be shown and further followed.

Project Phases

A project can have several phases - before submitting the proposal, before submitting the data management plan, and before finishing the project. These phases differ in the number and completeness of the questions answered in the project's Questionnaire. You can easily set the correct phase that responds to the phase your project is currently in.
