DMPonline at OpenAIRE-COAR 2014

On 20th May 2014 I presented DMPonline at an OpenAIRE-COAR 2014 pre-conference workshop in Athens, Greece. The workshop took place in the context of the EC Horizon 2020 Data Pilot and with particular reference to the manual that the EC has provided for the pilot.

What I’d like to do here is outline some of the key points and to address some that were raised during the presentation and subsequently, and also provide links to relevant resources.

This new release marks a major progression in terms of usability. The evaluation showed that users had difficulties creating a mental model of how the tool worked.
