Sample Data Management Plans
Below are links to a variety of sample data management plans. Keep in mind that these plans were developed to serve the particular needs of the project's investigators, funding agencies, designated user communities, and other stakeholders. The needs and requirements for your data will likely be different, and care should be taken to develop a data management plan that addresses your project directly. Also note that these examples are fully developed and active data management plans and not the 2-page summary required by the NSF and other funding agencies.
