Guide to data management

An overview for researchers on how to collect, manage, organize, and preserve data at all stages of the research process.

NEH Overview

Beginning in 2011, the NEH Office for Digital Humanities (ODH) requires grant applicants to include a two-page data management plan, modeled on the NSF data management plan requirements. The NEH does not prescribe particular tools, platforms, or repositories for data management. 

The NEH also makes DMPs from successful grant applications available to the public to assist scholars in writing their own plans.
