How you write your DMP depends on what type of data you have, your specific needs, or other requirements given by external parties. You can refer to various DMP checklists and examples to learn more about what constitutes a DMP.
It is always easier to start by using established online tools for DMP. These tools provide researchers with step by step instructions to build a DMP according to the requirements of major funders or using a generic template. This is especially helpful for researchers who are new to DMP preparation. The most widely known tools are DMPTool and DMPonline.
DMPTool is a free online tool developed by the University of California. Majority of the DMP templates provided in this tool are for US funders, but you can still use it by selecting the DMP template from DCC (Digital Curation Centre) for generic purposes.
DMPonline is a free online tool developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Majority of the DMP templates provided in this tool are for UK and European funders, but you can still create a DMP with built-in DCC guidance for generic purposes.
