Survey on the Horizon 2020 FAIR DMP template

You may have seen the announcements about the survey OpenAIRE has released on the Horizon 2020 FAIR Data Management Plan template. 
We've had over 170 responses so far, but want to increase the proportion of those who come from research community. We'd be really grateful of your support and personal contacts to help us distribute this far and wide.

Active, actionable DMPs

We had a spectacularly productive IDCC last month thanks to everyone who participated in the various meetings and events focused on the DMPRoadmap project and machine-actionable DMPs. Thank you, thank you! Sarah has since taken the traveling road show onward to a meeting at CERN (slides) and Stephanie discussed institutional infrastructure for DMPs at a meeting of California data librarians. In the midst of travels we’ve been wrangling the mountain of inputs into a draft white paper on machine-actionable DMP use cases. For now, we offer a preview of the report and an invitation to keep the momentum going at the RDA plenary in Barcelona, which is just around the corner (5–7 April).

A common set of themes for DMPs: seeking input

When the DCC revised DMPonline in 2013, we introduced the concept of themes to the tool. The themes represent the most common topics addressed in Data Management Plans (DMPs) and work like tags to associate questions and guidance. Moving forward, we see potential for broader application of the themes. In collaboration with the DMPTool, we plan to use a refined set of themes to support our objectives around machine-actionable DMPs. The themes provide the beginnings of a common vocabulary and structure for DMPs and could help to identify sections of text to mine, e.g., to identify a repository named in a DMP and the volume of data in the pipeline.

Customising DMPonline - admin interface launches

We're pleased to announce the launch of the DMPonline admin interface, which allows organisations to customise the tool. You can now add your own templates, custom guidance and examples without needing assistance from the DCC.
