Planning for your data management from the outset of your research project can improve the efficiency and soundness of your research. Planning will also make it easier for others (and you!) to re-use the data and software you generate after your research project is completed.
Data Services provides data management planning assistance for all Virginia Tech researchers and for compliance with all funding organizations. Because data management planning is integral to research planning we recommend you write a plan for new or existing research projects whether or not your funding organization requires it.
