Abstract:This poster reports on ongoing research into the National Science Foundation’s Data Management Plan guidelines and its impact on science data lifecycles. We ask two research questions (RQs): 1) How does guidance about the formulation of DMPs vary across different research areas? And 2) How has guidance about the management of data changed since the first DMP policies were published in 2011? To this end, we collected, examined, and compared 37 DMP guidance policies from 15 different research areas. We identify the following three themes during document analysis: 1) Responsibility for the future of data; 2) Data maintenance changes over time; and 3) The use of data repositories. Based on these preliminary findings we believe that National Science Foundation guidance policies represent a unique view into changes in data management practices over the last decade.
