Data Management Plan
ATTENTION: Grant-funded Researchers, Depositors, and Potential Depositors:
If you need a letter or collaboration or support from AILLA for a grant application, you must complete the following steps at least one month before your grant due date:
- Send the following information in a request for a collaboration/support letter to the AILLA Manager:
- Title of your project,
- The names of the indigenous languages and their ISO codes;
- The complete names of ALL (Co-)PIs (if you are applying for a DDRIG, you are the co-PI and your supervisor is the PI; we need both names);
- A draft of the Data Management Plan or DMP (see below), that includes a specific timeline for periodic data submissions to AILLA (note that we cannot take all of the data at the very end of the project);
- The name of the grant you are applying for, including if it is a Senior grant, a Fellowship, or a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (DDRIG); and
- The link to the call for proposals for the grant.
Many granting agencies, like NSF, NEH, NIH, IMLS, etc., now require researchers to submit a DMP as part of their grant proposal application. Researchers might find the information found at the following links useful for creating a DMP:
- View the slides and reading list from the 2017 LSA Institute Workshop on Data Management Plans for Linguistic Research and watch the videos here.
- There is a concise article about data management plans on Wikipedia that includes links to other websites.
- The DMPTool provides DMP requirements and templates for several specific funding agencies and programs.
- The University of Pittsburgh has detailed information about writing a Data Management Plan, as well as sample DMPs here.
- The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) also has helpful information about Data Management Plans here.
- This is a sample DMP from a senior research grant for the Documenting Endangered Languages program of the National Science Foundation. This sample has been annotated to highlight key elements to include.
- This is another sample DMP from a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (DDRIG) for the Documenting Endangered Languages program of the National Science Foundation. This sample has not been annotated.
