The DMPTool provides guidance and links to general and institutional resources and walks a researcher through the process of generating a quality plan tailored to specific DMP requirements. The uptake of DMPTool has been positive: to date, it has been used by over 7,000 researchers from 800 institutions, making use of more than 20 requirements templates customized for the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of  Health, the NOAA and other funding bodies. The DMPTool provides a high level of service, with an emphasis on new administrative functions so that institutions can better support local research activities.
