A Whyte | 27 October 2010

The ICPSR (US based Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Science Research) has continued its tradition of producing really useful guidelines for researchers across all disciplines. Its new Guidelines for Effective Data Management Plans include: -

  • Elements of a Data Management Plan: this includes an international comparison of guidance, showing the DCC offers the broadest coverage in our Contents checklist and DMPonline Tool.
  • Data Management Plan Resources: lists UK and international sources as well as other US funding body guidelines and templates
  • Other Data Management Plan Examples, drawn from US programmes and projects.

The ICPSR guidelines augment an expanding list of policy tools and guidance.
