Because good research needs good data

Customising DMPonline - admin interface launches

Sarah Jones | 10 July 2014

We've been doing a lot of work recently to help institutions customise DMPonline. We ran webinars in March and April to explain what options are available and have been trialling the admin interface with a small group of users since. We're pleased to announce that his has now gone live and is ready for you to use.

The admin interface allows organisations to:

  • Add template(s) for Data Management Plans. These can have any number of phases, sections and questions.
  • Add a section to funder templates if there are additional questions you need to ask.
  • Add guidance text and links to help researchers respond to questions. This guidance can pertain to your whole organisation or a subset within it (e.g. a department, institute or other group).
  • Provide examples and suggested answers for your own or funder questions.
  • See who else within your organistion has registered for DMPonline and how many plans they have created.

We have also produced lots of guidance to help you customise DMPonline:
