  • Random sample with 10% of the target population.After Pilot study (based on just 11 responses with no DMPs) we decided to incorporate a few additional questions to the survey, to get a better sense of their experiences on the process of writing and executing their DMPs.Response rate was affected by other factors, such as: wrong/invalid emails, PIs who changed institution , sabbatical or other types of leaves from who we got automatic responses, and in a few cases PIs who past away after receiving the award. Also, some PIs contacted us explaining they wouldn’t participate because, despite NSF’s mandate their research do not produce data or because they did not recall having a DMP.Only 40.24% of participants shared their DMP. Does it tell anything about willingness to share??? In some cases, participants affirmed they did not have it available when they were filling the survey out.
  • Amount - Almost the half falls on the 300 thousand to a million dollars range Good distribution of respondents across the 7 NSF directorates, slightly larger share for ENGINEERINGBIO – Biological SciencesGEO – GeosciencesCISE – Computer and Information Science and EngineeringEHR – Education and Human ResourcesMPS – Mathematical and Physical Sciences
  • Respondents fall mostly in the range between 35-44 yearsAnd as expected the majority belongs to an academic institution
  • From which, most are tenured and full professors
  • The map shows a geographical distribution of our respondents
  • On 3 questions in a 7-point likert scale format (strongly disagree to strongly agree) participants were asked about the importance of DMPs to formalize data sharing practices in science. Results show that respondents tend to somehow agree with the importance, but do not see the process of writing the DMP challenging or hard to execute in the future.
  • When we questioned: do you foresee barriers for the reuse of the data your research is/will be producing?? The word cloud shows the most recurrent topics in respondent’s to comments in cases they responded affirmatively to the question.
  • Some comments excerpts
  • Skepticism about enforcement or verification. Disbelieve it will work without an unified platform.Mention that some participants questioned if the DMP’s execution would be ever verified, because the data will be so dispersed, more paperwork for scientists with little effect on the real intention.
  • This last issue resonated in some other comments across the survey.
  • Reinforce 68 DMPs.
  • Reuse is yet very little covered in the DMPs, in some cases very general statements about potential users.
  • Not specified – time was not provided, but the DMP says the available data will be available. Not mentioned or no reference to when data will be available.
  • More adhoc procedures.4th item – famous saying “Count the chickens before they hatch”
