The National Science Foundation (NSF) now requires a Data Management Plan (DMP) to be included with grant proposals. The purpose of the DMP is to increase dissemination and sharing of research subsidized by NSF grants. Types of data that fall under this new requirement include (but are not limited to):

  • Data sets
  • Publications
  • Samples
  • Physical collections
  • Software
  • Models

Researchers are expected to make data accessible in a way that satisfies the best practices of their communities of interest. Some data management standards have already been established, and the NSF expects further standards to evolve as technology changes over time.

To help NSF grant applicants navigate the DMP requirement, Miami University Libraries and the Office for the Advancement of Research and Scholarship (OARS) have established a collaborative partnership. Librarians consult with researchers about best practices in compiling and implementing the data management plan portion of their proposal in addition to offering their expertise in existing and forthcoming standards in data management and description. The library also offers the services of staff who are experts in information dissemination and the creation of descriptive metadata, thereby ensuring that data management plans are created, submitted, and followed within existing guidelines and standards.

Additionally, the Miami University Libraries encourages researchers to store their data (in almost virtually any format, as well as the associated metadata) in the Miami Scholarly Commons. The library provides basic services to researchers free of charge, requiring no additional budget line for data management.
