Active actionable DMPs


Published on

Presentation given at 2nd DPHEP Collaboration Workshop at CERN on 12 March 2017. The talk reflects on machine-actionable DMP use cases developed during an IDCC workshop ( and activities underway or planned by the DCC and UC3 teams. These will be implemented in the DMPRoadmap codebase to pilot in our respective tools, DMPonline and DMPTool

Active actionable DMPs

  2. 2. ah Martin public domain
  3. 3. Planning & administration Create, analyse, manage data Publishing & reuse • DMP on periphery • Often done at grant stage and not looked at again • Opportunities to (re)use information being missed • Disconnected & unlinked
  4. 4. Planning & administration Create, analyse, manage data Publishing & reuse Identifiers:

  6. 6. 47 participants from 16 countries • Funders • Developers • Librarians • Service providers • Researchers Understand research workflows Develop use cases for maDMPs Set priorities for future work postcard-future-tools-and-services- perfect-dmp-world Utopia workshop
  7. 7. Uses cases and prioritisation • Interoperability with research systems • Institutional perspective • Repository use cases • Evaluation & monitoring • Utilising PIDs
  8. 8. maDMP priority areas • Common standards and protocols • Funder integration • Share/publish/deposit DMPs • Utilise PIDs for automatic reporting • Capacity planning (institutional & data centre) • Automated compliance checks
  9. 9. The problem of freetext Templates typically ask very broad questions, even when dropdown options are feasible (e.g. metadata standards, file formats, data volumes, repositories, licences…)

  14. 14. Institutional use cases I. Connect researchers to relevant services & support II. Gather information to forecast demand and do capacity planning III. Embed DMP in research process (domain workflows, ethics, admin systems) William Murphy. CC BY-SA 4.0
  15. 15. Persistent identifiers (PIDs) • Assign DOIs to releases of DMP versions • Leverage other PIDs to populate DMP over time: –Researcher IDs (ORCIDs) –Funder IDs (FundRef) –Grant IDs –Research Resource IDs (RRIDs) • antibodies, organisms, cell lines • Also enables compliance monitoring
  16. 16. ORCID integration
  17. 17. Utilising EC grant IDs in plans • Harvest grant IDs from OpenAIRE API • Provide look up when entering project details • Enables join up of DMP with other outputs
  18. 18. Evaluation & monitoring • Automated compliance checks – did researchers do what they said they would? • Quality or validation checks – closed questions / range of defined options – training and evaluation rubrics – evaluate FAIRness of data and repository…
