The Rensselaer Libraries have customized the DMPTool to help the Rensselaer community with their research data management plans (DMPs). The DMPTool is a web-based tool that assists in writing a DMP for funder requirements.

Highlights of the DMPTool:

  • DMP templates can be used for specific funders such as NIH, NSF, DOD, DOE, NEH, NASA and many more
  • RPI specific information is available, such as your affiliated school
  • DMPs can be saved and reused for future proposals
  • Make your DMP public, private, or visible to only Rensselaer users
  • Connect your DMP to an ORCID record
  • Invite collaborators at Rensselaer or other institutions to work on your DMP
