for Data Management Plans https://dmptool.org Sherry Lake Carly Strasser July 31, 2012 University of Florida Data Management Workshop
DMPTool Project• Partners: CDL UCSD DataONE UIUC Smithsonian UVa UCLA Digital Curation Centre (UK)• Started working in January 2011• Developed requirements, divided work among partners, self-funded

Goals of the DMPToolI. To provide researchers a simple way to create a DMP for their funding agency • Questions asked by the agency • Additional explanation/context provided by the agency • Links to the agency website for policies, help, guidance
Goals of the DMPToolII. To provide researchers with DMP information from their home institution • Resources and services to help them manage data • Help text for specific questions • Suggested answers to questions; easy to cut-N-paste • News & events related to data management on campus
Accessing DMPTool• DMPTool added to campus single sign-on service (InCommon / Shibboleth)• Researchers use their campus login to use the DMPTool• Access to institution-specific resources
Institution-Specific Information• Help text• Links to resources and services• Suggested answers• Can provide specific info at different levels – All DMPs – All DMPs for a particular funding agency – A question within a data management plan

Future Work• Integration with other systems initiatives (e.g., Databib)• Routing DMPs to institutional support personnel• Analytics• Integrating educational materials
Governance and Sustainability Self-funded Sustainable initiative model• Ideal model: Transparent | Nimble | Community input• Meeting July 23-24 – Funded by DataONE – Will include 2 experts to facilitate discussion of sustainability and governance issues – Cost of service will be determined prior to meeting by CDL
Final Takeaways1. Potential to be a data management focal point for the community2. Can function as the coordinating mechanism for an institution3. Can be used to scale services at both big and small institutions, with or without dedicated staff
How UF Can Participate• Configure Shibboleth login (“single sign-on”)• Add links to local resources, help text, suggested answers, contact information• Blog for local news and events• Stay tuned for updates and changes after July governance meeting
