Guidelines for Effective Data Management Plans Data Management Plans Federal funding agencies are increasingly recommending or requiring formal data management plans with all grant applications To help researchers meet those requirements ICPSR offers these guidelines Based on our Data Management Plan Web site this document contains a framework example data management plans links to other resources and a bibliography of related publications ICPSR also hosts a blog on data management plans and a recent webinar on the subject can be viewed on our Web site We hope you find this information helpful as you craft a data management plan Please contact us at netmail icpsr umich edu with any comments or suggestions Table of Contents Framework for Creating a Data Management Plan 2

Federal Agency Policies on Data Management and Sharing 13 Other Data Management Plan Examples from Natural Sciences 14 Appendix A Elements of a Data Management Plan 16 Appendix B Sample ICPSR Data Management Plan 18 Appendix C Data Management Bibliography 21 Guidelines for Effective Data Management Plans Framework for Creating a Data Management Plan This framework takes the form of a list of elements with issues and questions to consider and examples for each element Also included is information on why each element is important and suggestions for additional reading Data Description Recommended Provide a brief description of the information to be gathered the nature scope and scale of the data that will be generated or collected Access and Sharing Recommended Indicate how you intend to archive and share your data and why you have chosen that particular option Possible mechanisms for archiving and sharing include Domain repository like ICPSR social science Self dissemination through a dedicated Web site that the research team will create and maintain If this option is chosen it is recommended that the data producer arrange for eventual archiving of the data after the self dissemination period terminates and specify the schedule for data sharing in the grant application Preservation with delayed dissemination Under such an agreement the data producer makes an arrangement with a public data repository for archival preservation of the data with dissemination to occur at a later date usually within a year Institutional repositories Institutional repositories at academic institutions have the goal of preserving and making available some portion of the academic work of their students faculty and staff Note that not all IRs have the capacity to accept and curate data Why this is important A good description of the data to be collected will help reviewers understand the characteristics of the data their relationship to existing data and any disclosure risks that may apply Example 1 This project will produce public use nationally representative survey data for the United States covering Americans social backgrounds enduring political predispositions social and political values perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates opinions on questions of public policy and participation in political life Example 2 This project will generate data designed to study the prevalence and correlates of DSM III R psychiatric disorders and patterns and correlates of service utilization for these disorders in a nationally representative sample of over 8000 respondents The Why this is important sensitive nature of these data will require Sharing data helps to advance science that the data be released through a and to maximize the research investment restricted use contract A recent paper reported that when data 2 Guidelines for Effective Data Management Plans are shared through an archive research productivity increases and many times the number of publications result as opposed to when data are not shared will be the ultimate home for the data Example 3 The research data from this project will be deposited with repository to ensure that the research community has longterm access to the data The data will be under embargo for one year while the investigators complete their analyses Protecting research participants and guarding against disclosure of identities are essential norms in scientific research Data producers should take efforts to provide effective informed consent Example 4 statements to respondents to deidentify The research data from this project will be data before deposit when necessary and to deposited with the institutional repository communicate to the archive any additional on the grantees campus concerns about confidentiality See Ethics and Privacy below Will your data be free of direct and indirect identifiers If not how will you share your With respect to timeliness of data deposit restricted data Will special terms of use archival experience has demonstrated that be required the durability of the data increases and the cost of processing and preservation Example 5 decreases when data deposits are timely The data generated by this project will not It is important that data be deposited pose a disclosure risk All data will be dewhile the producers are still familiar with identified before posting to the Web site the dataset and able to transfer their established by the principal investigators knowledge fully to the archive Example 6 This project will generate data linked to Example 1 administrative records so the data will The research data from this project will be be distributed through a restricted data deposited with repository to ensure that use agreement managed by repository the research community has long term Through this mechanism users will apply access to the data to use these files create data security Example 2 plans and agree to other access controls The project team will create a dedicated Example 7 Web site to manage and distribute the Because the data generated will cover data because the audience for the data is sensitive topics it is expected that the small and has a tradition of interacting as data will be deposited with repository and a community The site will be established distributed through the secure data enclave using a content management system like mechanism requiring researchers to Drupal or Joomla so that data users can visit the enclave to access the data under participate in adding site
