Once you've understood how research data management practices apply to your project, you're ready to create a formal RDMP using the University of Sydney RDMP tool. As you go through the questions in the RDMP tool, use the RDMP tool help page to understand what some of the questions mean and what information you should include in your answers.

Throughout your project, keep your RDMP up to date. It's expected that your plan will change as your project evolves and grows - you might even end up taking your project in a direction that you didn't expect to! You can log in to the RDMP tool whenever you need to update it (an annual or 6 month review is recommended). At the end of your project, the RDMP should be an accurate description of the research data and the research data management practices that have been followed throughout the project.
