DMP Tool logo

The Data Management Plan Tool (DMPTool) is an online tool for creating, reviewing, and sharing data management plans. Templates for many funding agencies are available, including the NSF, NIH, and others. Cornell University is an institutional partner, allowing you to quickly log in using your Cornell NetID and password and easily get help and guidance from the RDMSG for Cornell-specific services.

Check out their quick start guide or, for more general information about data management plans, see our Data Management Planning guide.

Please note: The DMPTool is hosted by the California Digital Library (CDL). All content saved in the tool is held on CDL servers and is subject to their privacy policies.
