These documents provide good background and some copy-paste text that can be used to generate or fill the required NWO Data Management Plan (DMP) documents for any project related to the LHC experiments. The text you can copy from here, actually making a properly-formatted DMP is most easily done in DMP Online.

When using the DMPOnline tool, you can select the “NWO” (2020) template.

Please use that one, since otherwise the NWO assessors will fail to tick the rubric and you’ll get it returned with a request to ‘use an approved template’. We recently found out that their own NWO 2017 templates also get rejected, so are recasting the LHC standard templates also in the new format. We’ll be regenerating the ‘click-n-go’ LHC templates shortly - the LHCb one is the proposed new format and will be tested to see if it makes it through the NWO rubric. This experiment is ongoing.
