In DMPTool, there are now three templates for National Institutes of Health (NIH) data management and sharing (DMS) plans:

  • “NIH-Default DMSP”, comes directly from the NIH
  • [New] NIH-FDP Pilot Template Alpha and NIH-FDP Pilot Template Bravo, are part of the Federal Demonstration Partnership’s (FDP) Data Management and Sharing Plan Pilot

Any three of the templates can be used to submit a DMS plan to accompany an NIH grant and the Library Research Data Services Team is happy to review DMS plans created using any of the templates.

For more information about the FDP Data Management and Sharing Plan Pilot, please visit the Pilot’s webpage. If you use a FDP Pilot template, the FDP would appreciate your feedback which you can submit using their feedback survey.

If you have any questions, please contact the Library Research Data Services Team, datalib@umassmed.edu.

DMPTool create data management plan screen. National Institutes of Health selected as primary funder and three DMP templates listed: NIH-Default DMSP, NIH-FDP Pilot Template Alpha, NIH-FDP Pilot Template Bravo.
