Adapt your DMP: Part 1
The Data Management Plan (DMP) is an important tool to structure the research data management of your project. After working on each chapter you should be able to answer part of the questions which make up a DMP.
This is the first of seven 'Adapt your DMP' sections in this tour guide. When you have finished the chapter on data management planning, you can start filling in the 'Overview of your research project' section. Below you can see what elements and corresponding questions are generally included in that section. You can select appropriate questions and answer them to adapt your own DMP.
For easy reference, we have put together a list of DMP-questions for all chapters in this tour guide. You can view and download the checklist as pdf (CESSDA, 2018a) or editable form (CESSDA, 2018b), and keep them as a reference while you are studying the contents of this guide.
Examples of DMP questions and answers
For inspiration of filled in DMPs look at some example DMPs we have prepared. Both DMPs are based on a fictional research project with a basis in reality. For each topic of the DMP, there are example questions and answers where applicable. The examples are not country specific. Some of the information is generic.
During this project, in-depth interviews with teachers in primary school will be held. The project has just started.
The project concerns a survey which is conducted in order to identify how the evolution of society affects attitudes and behaviour. The project is still running.
