It is generally around 2 pages and documents how you will collect, organize, manage, store, secure, backup preserve and share the date collected through your research.
DMSP requirements will vary depending on your funding agency - always check their guidance when compiling your plan.

Assign a unique persistent identifier to your DMSP
Do you have an ORCID iD? Signing up for one is free, quick and easy. Your ORCID iD is a persistent digital identifier that you own and control. It helps to distinguish you from other researchers and gives you a platform for connecting your name with your professional information such as publications, grants, and affiliations. Many grant funding systems, publishers and repositories will require that you have one.
