From the "My Dashboard" page, click "Create Plan" to create a new data management and sharing plan.
When creating a plan, enter "National Institutes of Health" in the "Select the primary funding organization" box. This will load a plan template that includes the 6 elements required for an NIH data management and sharing plan. Once your plan is complete, you can download a PDF version to attach to your funding application.
*Please note, the "Research outputs" tab in the DMPTool is not required for compliance with the NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy.
