DMP services unite

In the middle of November we were joined for three days by our colleagues Maria Praetzellis and Brian Riley from DMPTool and Benjamin Faure from OPIDoR. On our end Sarah Jones, Sam Rust, Ray Carrick, Marta Nicholson, Diana Sisu and Magdalena Drafiova represented DMPonline. Over the three days we had a mix of group discussions to plan the future development roadmap (results of that later), as well as developer / project manager sessions and discussions with the wider DCC and CDL team on machine-actionable DMPs.

Lindsey Myers shares how University of York uses DMPonline

This month we are featuring a blog post from Lindsey Myers, Research Support Librarian at University of York. 

"With limited resource it is important to seize opportunities when they arise. The team quickly realised the value of DMPonline and we incorporated it into our service provision at an early stage. DMPonline is a tool that we actively promote to our research staff and research students in one-to-one appointments, at the training we deliver and online (e.g. within our RDM online tutorial)."

Brexit and ensuring we can meet our Service Level Agreements were two major concerns in this decision-making process. After investigating options, we have decided to remain with University of Edinburgh hosting. This blog post outlines our thoughts.

DMPonline user group at the London School of Economics

On the 17th September 2019 we ran a user group at the London School of Economics. For the first time we had a user group with subscribers from the UK, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands so we could look at the tool from different perspectives and backgrounds. It was great to discuss how you use DMPonline, which new functionalities you wish us to add to the tool, and to get your feedback on our future plans and developments.

Following on from our user group last week, the DMPonline team met yesterday and has prioritised the feature requests you raised. Ray Carrick started work for the DCC on Monday so we have doubled developer effort, and with Marta rejoining later in the year we’re pressing full steam ahead!

DMPonline at Maastricht University Medical Center

This month we are sharing a blog post from Maastricht University Medical Center written by Mirjam Kamps.

"Since more and more funders require researchers to write a Data Management Plan we were looking for a tool with added value for the researchers. We were aiming for a user-friendly tool with opportunities for development. That is why two years ago we decided to start working with a local version of DMPonline: DMPMaastricht."

DMPonline@TU Delft

This month we are featuring a story from DMPonline@TU Delft written by Madeleine de Smaele and Marta Teperek.

"Good research data management involves careful handling and organisation of research data throughout the research lifecycle and is a necessary prerequisite for effective data sharing and greater openness.

DMP inspiration down under

I've had a number of inspiring DMP discussions over the last few weeks, both Australian and European based. Here in Oz, funders do not require data management plans like they do in the UK and USA. This has led to the growth of quite different tools as institutions fit the DMP to local priorities.
