DMPonline: up, up and away

2018 has been action-packed for DMPonline with the launch of the DMPRoadmap codebase, major new releases, the rollout of a new subscription model and switch to multi-tenant deployment of the DCC-hosted service. We have grown from 3 to 23 customers in the last quarter and have been busy visiting our early adopters from Finland and Maastricht in the final days before Christmas to make plans for next year. We welcome a new full-time member of staff to the DMPonline support team in January and are planning a series of training events and user group sessions in Spring. Read full details in the year in review.

DMPonline charging for administrative users

In November 2016, I wrote about how changes in our income streams meant that we would be introducing charges for more of our services over the coming years. In August, I wrote to UK university DMPonline admin users to inform them that we would be taking action on this from November 2018. In this news item I set out further detail on how this model will apply to organisational users around the world and also to give some reassurances. In particular, we wish to make clear:

  • DMPonline will remain free at the point of use for researchers to develop, share, publish and maintain data management plans, regardless of whether their institution or funder has a subscription

We have no plans to change this model at any time in the future.

Webinar: DMPonline - new directions

As part of Open Access week, the DCC will be giving a webinar on recent developments in DMPonline. To join please register via GoToMeeting.

In Spring we launched the new DMPRoadmap platform with our colleagues at the California Digital Library. This was a major upgrade to the codebase and incorporated a redesign of the front end and underlying data model. Performance improvements and a number of new features were also added. We have continued to add more features over Summer and Autumn, particularly for administrative users and will demo these. The webinar will also cover the new subscription model and some of the most Frequently Asked Questions emerging about the contract and service delivery.
