Data Management Plans (DMPs) should be living documents that are added to and refined as you move through your project.
There are now two pathways to the Data Management Plan at ECU, for new projects via the Research Ethics Management System (REMS) or directly if you have a current project.
ECU's Information Management and Archive Service (IMAS) has recommended the following top level file structure for use while the research project is in process. Arranging your documents in line with the structure facilitates the easy transfer of all project files to IMAS at project completion from the ECU provisioned SharePoint for your project.
RP1_0010 - YOUR NAME - RESEARCH PROJECT TITLE
1 PROJECT ADMINISTRATION
2 RESEARCH TEAM AGREEMENTS
3 RESEARCH TEAM ETHICS
4 RESEARCH TEAM FINANCE
5 RESEARCH REPORTING
6 CONDUCTING RESEARCH - this is where data you've collected should be stored
7 DATA ANALYSIS
8 RESEARCH DISSEMINATION - PUBLISHING
