54 54 A data management plan (DMP) documents the definitions, procedures, methods, and best practices for a project or organization to maintain a consistent practice of RDM. Careful planning for data management before you begin your research and throughout the data's life cycle is essential (Source #50) because it can increase project efficiency and optimize the reliability of the data that are collected by minimizing errors.

56 -DMPs come in two types. The first type is prepared as part of a grant proposal because of the mandate from funding agencies such as the (% style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal;" %)U.S.(% style="font-size: 14px;" %)National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Examples of this type of DMPs can be found from funding agencies' website as well as many research universities' websites, e.g., the Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) at UC San Diego provides a list of DMP samples for major NSF disciplinaries ([[http:~~/~~/rci.ucsd.edu/dmp/examples.html>>url:http://rci.ucsd.edu/dmp/examples.html]]).

58 -Another type of DMPs is created when a new research project starts or when an institution takes a data management initiative. In the case that a project is funded by a grant from NSF or other funding agency, the DMP submitted with the proposal will need to be expanded with operational specifics for the project staff to follow and execute. The operational DMP for a new research project should specify essential management tasks that may have not included in the proposal DMP, including data storage structures, backup schedules, naming conventions for data files and folders, and procedures for data processing and transformation, in addition to the high-level descriptions in a proposal-stage DMP.
