What resources are available for data management and curation?

Data management Plans

Miami encourages the use of DMPTool to help researchers write data management plans.

Miami University Scholarly Commons

The repository is a service of the Miami University libraries and free for use by Miami faculty and students. Research and scholarly output included here has been selected and deposited by the individual faculty, and university departments and centers on campus.

How do I prepare proposals for external funding?

How do I find funding opportunities?

  • GrantForward is a subscription-based source of funding opportunity information for most disciplines. Miami students, faculty, and staff can use GrantForward free of charge.
  • Detailed guides are available from GrantForward Support.
  • Please contact CaTia Daniels to request access to the recording of the GrantForward training session.
