Welcome to the DMP tool at Jülich

Here, researchers of the FZ Jülich can create and manage data management plans (DMPs).

A DMP supports a reasearch project. In a DMP, the project members can document for themselves and others how the project plans to handle project research data. Moreover, the DMP defines terms of copyright and licensing as well as reponsibility for the data during and after the project.

When proposing a project, a DMP is a helpful – and increasingly required – document, which enhances the odds getting funded.

A DMP consists of a catalog of questions, which is completed by the researches. It is a living document. As such, it is constantly updated during the reserach project.

Every resarch project is supposed to get a DMP of its own.
