IDCC Presentation on the Future of Data Management Planning, Feb 2016

  1. 1. The Future of DMPs: Tools, Policies and Players Sarah Jones Digital Curation Centre Twitter: @sjDCC IDCC, Amsterdam, 23-24 February 2016 #idcc16 Stephanie Simms California Digital Library Twitter: @stephrsimms
  2. 2. Overview • DMPTool, U.S. policies and players • DMPonline, UK/EU policies and players • Internationalisation • Sustaining and extending services • Moving beyond compliance
  3. 3. DMPTool Create, review, and share data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements A short history Launched in October 2011 following planning efforts of founding partners: CDL, DCC, DataONE, Smithsonian, UCLA, UCSD, UIUC, UVa Released v.2 in May 2014 with extra functionality Roadmap for new work on API, usability in 2016
  4. 4. DMPs in the U.S. context 1. OSTP memo 2013, funder responses 2. Institution/library-led initiatives 3. Individual researchers
  5. 5. Whitmire et al. RDAP 2015
  6. 6. Institutional partners & librarians #OSTPResp
  7. 7. What about the researchers? • Individual researchers using the tool, but not reaching disciplinary communities • Low return rates (0.86 plans/user for DMPTool) • International users
  8. 8. A web-based tool to help researchers develop and maintain data management plans A short history Launched in April 2010 at the Jisc conference Released v.2 in March 2011 with extra functionality Released v.3 in April 2012 with revisions in light of the DMPTool and work from the Jisc MRD programme Released v.4 in Dec 2013, incorporating major changes from an evaluation and extensive user testing Subsequent point releases in 2014-2015 to add new features DMPonline
  9. 9. DMPs in the European context • Lots of national RDM pilot projects • Surge of overseas enquiries and use of DMPonline • Requests to deliver DMP services internationally • Translations into French, Spanish, German… • Engagement with European Commission to advise and train project officers
  10. 10. Locale-aware support for DMPonline • Supporting use of the tool in different contexts • Presentation of different (smaller set of) options based on location / organisation / affiliation • Single sign-on for non-UK contexts • Support for foreign languages
  11. 11. Move towards chargeable DMP services • Delivering separate instances of DMPonline for University of Melbourne and DMPTuuli • Potential for subscriptions services e.g. admin access to customise the tool • Libraries of templates with a feed of updates
  12. 12. Engaging with developer community • Few active forks on DMPonline GitHub repository • Enhancements and bug fixes shared by developer teams in UK, Canada and Australia • Integration projects, e.g. DMPTool with OSF What support is needed? • DMPonline-dev mailing list? • Share roadmaps to avoid duplication of effort? • Reconcile forks / commit to same codebase?
  13. 13. Key stakeholders & common interests • Researchers • Disciplinary communities • Research funders • Institutions • Librarians • Data centres • Developer community
  14. 14. A single platform for all things DMP? Co-manage, co-develop and issue joint roadmap Benefit from pooling resources and expertise Effective engagement with global research community
  15. 15. Moving DMPs beyond compliance
  16. 16. “A number of scientific studies indicate that most global warming in recent decades is due to the great concentration of greenhouse gases released mainly as a result of human activity.” #encyclical
