A Data Management Plan (DMP) is a short document (usually between 1-3 A4 pages) which outlines how data will be managed throughout your research project, including creation, organisation, storage, security, and sharing of data. Planning for this at the outset will enable you to conduct your research more effectively. A DMP’s complexity can vary depending on the research project.
If your research will generate empirical or statistical datasets or other digital objects you will need to write a Data Management Plan (DMP). All applications to the University Research Ethics Sub-Committee must be accompanied by a DMP reviewed by the Library, Archives and Learning Services.
Our current UEL DMP Template is available from the below link:
If you began your project before September 2019 please use our Lite Template. Note, that this template will not be accepted for any new projects. If you require our DMP Lite Template or are unsure of which one to use, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing a DMP is an opportunity for you to consider at an early stage potential issues you will encounter during your research and how you will mitigate these.
The deadline dates for the submission of applications for ethical approval are listed below, with the corresponding Committee meeting dates.
All applications to the University Ethics and Integrity Sub-Committee must be accompanied by a DMP reviewed by the library.
