Data Management Plan Toolbox

The University expects a data management plan (DMP) to be in place before a new research project commences. Many research funders expect a data management plan when applying for a grant. On this page, you'll find help to get you started.  

Once you're ready to write your DMP we suggest you login to DMPonline using your University credentials and use the annotated templates and advice we provide there.

Your DMP can be reviewed by your School or Faculty research support team, or you can email Please note that our turnaround for review is 2 weeks

We are aware that UKRI requirements for data management planning have recently changed. Updated guidance has not been issued from UKRI as yet. We will update these resources as soon as guidance is available.
