The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) makes available a Data Management Plan (DMP) tool to help researchers to compile a DMP for a research project.  For some funding agencies a DMP is compulsory and records how the researcher will manage the research data during the project.


The DMP Includes:

  • Data collection
  • Data documentation and metadata
  • Ethics and legal compliance
  • Data Storage and backup
  • Data selection and preservation
  • Data sharing
  • Responsibilities and resources
