Data Management Plans Tool, a community tool 11 July 2011 DataONE Users Group (DUG) Meeting
The what and why of a DMPComponents of a DMP The value of a DMP1. Content Characteristics: the types of National funding agencies have data sharing data, samples, physical collections, polices software… Scientific journals (Nature, Science, and PLoS)2. Standards: the standards to be used for have sharing requirements. data and metadata format and content Distributing research results may increase3. Access: policies for access and sharing , citations (Piwowar et al., 2007) provisions for appropriate protection of A shared, common data set may help privacy, confidentiality, security, researchers collaborate and accelerate intellectual property… discoveries (NY Times, 2010).4. Sharing: policies and provisions for re-use, Sharing research products is increasingly re-distribution important (Nature, 2009; Science, 2011).5. Archiving: plans for archiving data, samples, and other research products, For the researcher: and for preservation of access to them. • helps organize data • cultivate quality and efficiency • help with preserving and sharing data Thanks to Jeffrey Loo, Chemical Informatics Librarian, UCB 2
Overview of project• Eight institutions coming together• Leveraging the work of the DMPOnline from the UK’s Digital Curation Centre• Tool will have multiple phases• Goals: 1. Help a researcher create a data management plan that meets funder requirements 2. Help a researcher identify local information and resources that add value to the plan 3
Version 1 “Beta” – August 2011• Two funder workflows 1. NSF Generic 2. NSF Biosciences• One user-type: “Researcher”• Authentication/association with institutional resources for founding partner institutions• Local accounts for non-founding partner institutions• Release at 2011 Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) 4
User Type 1: DMP Tool Use Case What a researcher can do – DataONE Researcher1. Establish an account2. View sample plans3. Preview funder requirements4. Create, save, edit, publish plan5. View, use, past plans6. Use help (generic andinstitution specific)7. View news and latest changes 5
Select home institution -- routes users through their organization’s authentication gateway -- pick up branding 2.1. HOSTED BY THE UC LIBRARIES THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA University of California Libraries 7
Login screen will look slightly different for organizations routing users through their own authentication system. HOSTED BY THE UC LIBRARIES THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA University of California Libraries 8
Home screen: once the user has logged in presented with a view of their work and options1.2.3. University of California Libraries 9
Version 2 – after September 2011• Funder workflows for all additional NSF areas with specialized guidelines, NEH ODH, others• Additional user types: – “Editor” – “Institution” – “Funder”• Opportunity for other institutions to authenticate and showcase local resources• Will likely be seeking funding support for expansion from here forward 13
User 2: An Editor contributingEditor’s Roles and to the DMP Toolresponsibilities• Primary role is to create and maintain funder templates• Create new funder• Create new plan (version)• Create question text• Create help screen text (as applies to questions)• Revise and edit• From a partner institution• Entrusted University of California Libraries 14
User 3: an institutionAn institution’s use of theDMP Tool • A range of partners coming together in new ways, pooling expertise • Libraries • Administrative offices • Data centers • Faculty / researchers SPONSORED PROJECTS OFFICE LIBRARY OFFICE OF RESEARCH • Create and maintain TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER / IP relevant information • Resource links • Institution specific information and tools • Local help • Generate reports • Use the DMP Tool PROF. JIM CAREY, UC DAVIS UCLA’S NEWEST DATA CENTER 15
User 4: a funderA funder contributing to the Initial funding agenciesDMP Tool• Add news specific to funding • NSF General agency • NSF Directorates – Changes to existing • National Institutes of Health requirements • Institute of Museum and Library – New requirements Services• Add resources • As partners request about a specificfunding program 16
Summary1. Aim to be the “go to place” for DMPs in the US – Pulling together funder and institutional practices and requirements – Single institutional location for decision-making guidance for policy, infrastructure, and services – Open development plan allowing integration with other systems and initiatives2. Service as a broad community of expertise and support for data management that enables connections between domain areas3. Practical approach and recognition of the realities of pre- proposal processes and the need to make it quick and easy 17
Seeking Feedback1. What do you expect to be the most valuable part of version 1 for you?2. What would make version 2 more valuable for you?3. How do you think this project should be promoted and marketed to researchers? 18
