About SA-DMP Tool

Research funders now require that Data Management Plans (DMPs) be produced when a user is applying for funding.

The SA-DMP Tool is a tool that is created to assist users to be able to create Data Management Plans that meet the funder's requirements. The SA-DMP Tool was developed by the Data Intensive Research Initiative of South Africa (DIRISA), which is focused on improving research data management services in South Africa.

How the tool works

The tool has a number of templates in it that have requirements from different funders and institutions. Users are initially asked a few questions to allow the system to create a plan. Guidance is provided that helps the user answer the questions.
