  • There are lots of great tools created by others in the community. DCC has recently overhauled its external tools catalogue to better profile these – let us know what you think!
  • I’ll give a quick over view to DCC’s main tools DMP Online is a tool to help researchers write plans. It pulls together the various requirements and relevant support to make the process easier.
  • At the outset you’re asked to select templates that are appropriate for your context e.g. funder templates if applying for funding, disciplinary or institutional ones etc
  • You’re then presented with a template which draws out relevant questions from the DCC Checklist together with custom guidance
  • DMP Online version 3 has just been released (May 2012) and it brings significant added functionality to the tool You can now layer different templates to meet various requirements at once, an API is being developed and boilerplate text can be added.
  • Institutional versions of DMP Online can also be provided – just select the questions you want to include, add your branding, details of local guidance, links to support staff at your uni and suggested answers where appropriate Options for customisation are outlined in Martin’s blog post
  • DAF is a survey method that has primarily been used to investigate RDM practice. JISC’s original hope was to identify and register data assets too, but the scale of holdings was found to be too great. Originally it was called the Data Audit Framework and this was changed to ‘Asset’ so you’ll see it under both names
  • There are various things you may want to investigate, so the first task is to set the scope and then decide the best way to collect that information Lots of people have already done similar studies so repurpose their work
  • Here’s an example of how DAF was used at Northampton. They used a few interviews to set the scope, then did an online survey and used the results to identify researchers for in-depth interviews Coverage addressed the nature of the data and most activities / issues that may be encountered throughout the research lifecycle
  • The DAF study at Northampton came out of the JISC KeepIT project. Findings from the study have led to a RDM policy, a DMP Online template, and now policy implementation via the DCC engagements
  • CARDIO is a tool to gain consensus across researchers & services on current RDM capability It’s based on the three-legged stool model and uses a 1-5 scale for maturity modelling There’s a mini quiz and full online tool
  • CARDIO works by getting lots of viewpoints, so there are options to invite participants. You can limit the questions each person is expected to answer. You then consider the questions and enter a 1-5 rating. Example statements are provided to help in the assessment.
  • I’m not going to talk about how CARDIO has been used as there’s a great example here at UWE. I’ll hand you over to Stella.
