Supporting and reviewing Data Management Plans

25 February 2016

Overview

This workshop was organised by the Digital Curation Centre, the California Digital Library and the DART project. The aim was to bring together people undertaking work on Data Management Plans (DMPs) to provide an international forum for sharing lessons and expertise. The DART project methodology for developing an evaluation rubric was used in a practical exercise on reviewing DMPs.
