New BIO-wide Guidance on Data Management Plans


On October 1st, BIO posted to its website an updated BIO Data Management Plan (DMP) Guidance document. In consultation with BIO Program Directors (2013-2015) and analysis of BIO DMPs (2013-2014), the guidelines have been revised to clarify what’s expected in terms of content, and to also include very general procedures for their review across the proposal and award management cycle. The guidelines are generally similar to the prior guidance documents issued in 2011 and 2013 and reflect the continued development of best practices and research community expectations.

A link to the new guidance on the BIO homepage goes to the Biological Sciences Guidance on Data Management Plans webpage: http://www.nsf.gov/bio/biodmp.jsp
