- Next generation DMPTool development status: We are making good progress on the next version of the DMPTool. The project page, including requirements for the new tool are located at https://bitbucket.org/dmptool/main/wiki/DMPTool2Project.

- DMPTool webinar series: We held 3 webinars in June, with an average of about 65 registrants per webinar. (We know that several groups of people called in via one registration, so the actual number of attendees is larger.) The slides and recording, as well as the schedule of upcoming webinars, are available here: http://blog.dmptool.org/webinar-series/.
- There were over 200 data management plans created in June 2013, and 243 new users. There are a total of over 5,600 registered users from over 700 institutions, who have created almost 5,000 data management plans.
