Data Management Plan

1. The data generated in the course of the proposal are created at the Scientific Data & Computing Centre (SDCC), formally known as the RHIC and ATLAS Computing Facility (RACF) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and under the supervision of the STAR Collaboration.  These data are shared with the entire STAR Collaboration and Brookhaven National Laboratory.  STAR maintains a complete backup archive of all data generated at the SDCC. These data are available from STAR to the public according to the data management plan of STAR and BNL.

2. All the results of analysis carried out here at XXX are made available on public websites that are maintained and backed up by STAR.  These data files are machine-readable and provide all the data and figures of all published work.  In addition, an analysis note is prepared for each publication that includes a complete description of all the steps used to analyze the data and a complete list of the computer codes including macros to produce the published figures.  The computer codes and figure macros are verified by other STAR collaborators prior to submission for publication.

3. The XXX group follows all requirements given by BNL, STAR, and the SDCC concerning data management.

4. The XXX group maintains its training in Cyber security both at BNL and here at the [Your institutions].
