Research proposals are evaluated on the criteria of intellectual merit and broader impacts; the proposed projects are expected to be theoretically motivated, conceptually precise, methodologically rigorous, and empirically oriented.

Data Management Plan Resources

RIT is now participating in DMPTool, which means researchers can use the service to create and share data management plans for a variety of sponsors.  Many federal and private sponsors now require data management plans as a part of all proposals.  Some sponsors have given added weight to data management plans in the review process.  DMPTool can guide you through the process of creating a data management plan and help you comply with sponsor requirements.
