DMP Assistant

DMP Assistant is a Canadian bilingual tool for preparing data management plans (DMPs). The tool follows best practices in data stewardship and walks researchers step-by-step through key questions about data management.

Create a DMP Assistant account and add information about your project to the template. The Data Management Plan you produce with DMP Assistant’s UBC or Portage templates is ready to be added to grant application forms.

About DMP Assistant

Hosted by the Canadian national Portage initiative, DMP Assistant is designed to meet the anticipated Data Management Plan requirements (in English or French) of these Canadian funders:

  • Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI)
  • Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
  • Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
  • Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)

Note: UBC Library is working to provide access to DMP Assistant via UBC CWL. When these projects are complete, users will have the option to link an existing DMP Assistant account to their CWL. We are also working with our UBC REB colleagues to harmonize data management and ethics requirements in BC.
