Data Management Plan
ATTENTION: Grant-funded Researchers, Depositors, and Potential Depositors:
The deadline to request an archiving support letter from AILLA for an NSF (or any other) grant proposal is Wednesday, August 29, 2018. After this date, we will not be able to supply letters of support until November 2018. Please plan accordingly.
If you need a support letter from AILLA for a grant application, you must complete the following steps:
- Contact the AILLA Manager, at least one month before your grant due date and send the following information:
- Title of your project,
- The names of the indigenous languages;
- The complete names of all (Co-)PIs;
- A draft of the Data Management Plan or DMP (see below), that includes a specific timeline for submitting your data to AILLA;
- 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.
