Active Data Management Plans IG

IG

Group details

TAB Liaison: 
Jane Wyngaard
Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

The proposed activity of this group is to act as a nucleus for discussing requirements for and identifying developments needed to support active (i.e. able to evolve and be monitored) data management planning. Working groups will be proposed to carry out work on specific areas of interest.

Currently research data management plans (DMP), created at the proposal stage of a project, do not evolve and cannot be monitored in any detail. The DMP should begin at the planning stage for any dataset, evolving through its entire lifecycle and is therefore fundamental to ensuring that data is appropriately managed, archived, preserved and available for re-use. 

There is very broad interest and willingness to contribute to the work. Preliminary ideas around the concept of ADMPs and potential topics for the working groups have been identified. These include specifying practical tools and services to support the data creators and their organisations in managing and making their data re-usable and also as the data managers and funders that have a requirement to administer and monitor these plans.  The ADMP IG is distinct from, but will need to work with, many other groups including those on certification, domain repositories, metadata and preservation e-infrastructures.

Publishing DMPs

Thanks for valuable input to this issue. I also would like to add a correction: The recommendations in the openAIRE report I referred to was not directed to the ERC, but to EC. Thanks to Dagmar Meyer for pointing this out to me.

Best regards,
Philipp

Re: [dmp-common][rda-datamanagplans] Publishing DMPs

Dear Philipp,
I just came back from Tromso, visiting the data/information literacy colleagues at UIT :-)
In Nijmegen (the Netherlands) we are busy rebuilding the DMP Online tool attached (with a tool ) to our CRIS system (Metis). We thus will archive DMPs on a university server, but registration-wise they are connected to projects, researchers and (future) datasets. We included an option for the library (central RDM support)/data stewards at our research institutes to check and approve these DMP’s.

Publishing DMPs

It is becoming increasingly common to make data management plans (DMPs) public. The Norwegian Research Council have recently updated their policy adding a section where they encourage Norwegian research institutions to publish the DMPs of their researchers (cf. – in Norwegian –  https://www.forskningsradet.no/no/Nyheter/Datahandteringsplaner_sikrer_gjenbruk_av_data/1254032409350/p1174467583739).

Exposing DMPs group update

Dear all,
With the new year here, and several months passed since our last call, I wanted to update you on co-chairs activity. Firstly, looking forward to the forthcoming plenary 11 in Berlin we got a session proposal in, which you can find here:
https://rd-alliance.org/wg-exposing-data-management-plans-rda-11th-plena...
We expect to hear whether that session is accepted towards the end of January, so we’ll schedule a call early February (more on that soon).

Webinar on H2020 DMP survey

In Summer 2017, OpenAIRE and the FAIR Data Expert Group ran a survey on the European Commission’s approach to Data Management Plans and the FAIR guidelines on data management.  

We've just been finalising the report and will publish this in early January in advance of a webinar where we discuss results. Ellen Leenarts (DANS-KNAW) and Sarah Jones (DCC) will present:

Active DMPs at the next RDA plenary

***Please excuse the cross-posting***
Hello Active DMP Enthusiasts,
We're writing to notify you of planned activities for the next RDA plenary in Berlin (21-23 Mar). The DMP Common Standards working group is submitting a proposal for a working meeting that we encourage all interested parties to attend. The Exposing DMPs working group is also likely to submit a proposal. We will not host a session for the interest group as we're keen to direct community energy into contributing to the goals of the working groups.
