Elements of a Data Management Plan: Organization and Standards


The purpose of this module is to introduce you to the range of topics related to data organization and standards that may be important for you to address in your data management plan.  We say may be important because just as every research project is different, so every data management plan needs to be different to accommodate the particular needs of that project.  This means that some topics on data organization and standards will be more important to think about and describe in your data management plan than others.  Which topics are more important will depend on the size, scale, complexity and other details of your project that differentiate what you are doing from what others are  doing.  So… no, unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits all data management plan!
