The DMPTool (Data Management Planning Tool) aids researchers in creating data management plans to meet requirements of the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and other funding agencies. DMPTool is a freely‐available web application which guides users through the process of creating a DMP for a range of funders and connect users with data management planning resources. The DMPTool allows users to edit, save, share, print, and download their data management plans.  Institutions can customize the tool and configure Shibboleth login.   A group of major research institutions has partnered to create a flexible online tool including, Univeristy of Virginia Library, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Smithsonian Institution, DataONE, UC Curation Center at the California Digital Library. In early January we will be pushing out a new version of the tool that will allow institutions to create their own DMP requirements for their community of users.
