Abstract

The need for better management of research data is increasingly becoming understood not only by those who collect and generate these data, but also by those who have a research funding or governance rôle. As a result it is now becoming more usual for research funders to expect evidence of formal data management planning in the initial bid for funds, with detailed plans being required early in the management of a funded project. The IdMRC Projects Data Management Plan (DMP) is both a specification for the DMPs to be written for IdMRC projects, and a summary of the support structures needed to implement them. It is presented in draft form as data management support within the centre, and the University of Bath generally, is still evolving; for this reason it contains elements of both prescription and guidance.
