DMPTool Service Update: September 2017
- If you missed the announcements last month (e.g., here), please note that the DMPTool brochure page https://dmp.cdlib.org now redirects to the main application https://dmptool.org/. It’s time to update your bookmarks.
- Machine-actionable DMPs: We received a 2-year NSF EAGER grant to support research and development of machine-actionable DMPs! (details on the blog). As part of this community-driven effort, we convened a joint session of the Active DMPs and Domain Repositories Interest Groups at the Research Data Alliance Plenary 10 in Montreal (19-21 Sept) to report on ongoing work around the world and coordinate plans for the future. Thanks to everyone who contributed to a lively session (notes and slides here). Join us next month at the FORCE11 meeting in Berlin to help define principles for FAIR DMPs (25-27 Oct)—register now; remote participation also available. And/or contact us to get involved.
- DMPTool Street Team. Another shout out to the DMPTool Steering Committee members and engaged admins like Yasmeen Shorish who are helping to spread the word about machine-actionable DMPs. Keep your eyes peeled for postcard and sticker swag at upcoming events: DLF Forum, FORCE2017.
There are now 213 participating institutions that have either configured their campus single sign-on or customized the DMPTool for their users. Welcome to the following new institutions:
University of Colorado Denver
