Funding bodies increasingly require their grant-holders to produce a Data Management Plans (DMP), both during the bid-preparation stage and after funding has been secured. DMPonline helps research teams respond to this requirement, and any expectations that their institution or others may apply.
DMPonline is based on the open source DMPRoadmap code base, which is jointly developed by the Digital Curation Center (DCC) and the University of California Curation Center (UC3). The DCC and UC3 work closely with research funders and universities to produce a tool that generates active DMPs and caters for the whole lifecycle of a project, from bid preparation stage through to completion.
The Danish instance of DMPonline has been established by the DEFF project "National konsolidering af DMPonline-organisation og support". The project is running through 2017-2018, and will include planning the continued operation of DMPonline after the project period.
The universities and/or university libraries around Denmark each have local support staff in place who offer guidance and services related to DMPonline and data management planning. Consult your local DMPonline support for further details on what is available at your university.
There are a number of templates within the tool that represent the requirements of different funders and institutions. Users are asked three questions at the outset so we can determine the appropriate template to display (e.g. the Horizon2020 template when applying for an EC grant). Guidance is provided to help you interpret and answer the questions. This guidance is provided by researcher funders, universities and disciplines.
