This pilot service will support the development of strong, effective data management plans (DMPs) by College of Engineering researchers for National Science Foundation (NSF) grants.
DMPs authored by U-M College of Engineering researchers for NSF grants can be submitted to the service for review by sending them via email to enginDMPhelp@umich.edu.
Who will review my DMP?
A librarian and an IT person will review your DMP. Someone from the Associate Dean for Research Office may also review your DMP if the librarian or IT reviewer have questions that they need help with.
How will the review be conducted?
When a DMP is received, it is uploaded into Google Drive and shared with the specific people who will be reviewing the DMP, as well as whomever submits the DMP. The comment feature will be used to leave comments in the document. The document itself will not be edited by the reviewers, although the reviewers may provide suggested language in their comments. You will be notified via email once all reviews are finished.
What is the turnaround time?
For now, the service is guaranteeing a 10-business day turnaround time for a first review. Overall time may extend longer than that based on how many questions the reviewers have and how quickly the DMP submitter responds to those questions.
I have additional questions.
