This is an annotated data management plan (DMP) template for an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant application.

This document (available in .pdf and .docx formats) was created using DMPonline (University of Sheffield version), which provides templates for structuring major research funder DMPs. The document includes guidance text produced by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), the AHRC and the University of Sheffield Library (see References below).

AHRC guidance states:
The data management plan will be assessed by reviewers from our Academic College. The plan should be written in Arial or Times New Roman font at size 11 with normal 2cm margins and entitled Data Management Plan. The data management plan can be up to a maximum of two pages long and can include diagrams, but these must be within the 2 page limits.
