New Article Published in the International Journal of Digital Curation

We are excited to share that our article, “Data Management Planning for an Eight-Institution, Multi-Year Research Project”, was just published in the International Journal of Digital Curation. The article describes how the Data Doubles project developed its four data management plans and how central they were to the success of the project.

The article abstract is as follows:

While data management planning for grant applications has become commonplace alongside articles providing guidance for such plans, examples of data plans as they have been created, implemented, and used for specific projects are only beginning to appear in the scholarly record. This article describes data management planning for an eight-institution, multi-year research project. The project leveraged four data management plans (DMP) in total, one for the funding application and one for each of the three distinct project phases. By understanding researcher roles, the development and content of each DMP, team internal and external challenges, and the overall benefits of creating and using the plans, these DMPs provide a demonstration of the utility of this project management tool.

The four data management plans themselves are available on the team’s OSF site at You can find the article using the following citation:
