In order to better understand the ongoing needs of campus researchers for managing and sharing their research data the University Libraries conducted a local study of Data Management Plans (DMPs) included in successful National Science Foundation grant applications from January 2011 - June 2014. Participation in the study was opt-in by U of M principal investigators (PIs) on the grants. Thanks to support within the colleges for participation the libraries collected 182 data management plans for our study, accounting for 41% of the total number of plans solicited. Overall, the College of Science of Engineering accounted for the majority of plans, accounting for 80% of the plans included in the review. The results of this study will inform the development of robust and targeted data services, both from the libraries and our campus partners, that aim to increase the impact of research produced at the University of Minnesota.
