Dear Tomasz, Christine and all,
I understand Christine’s remarks. However It seems to me that maDMP are supposed to describe data (and/or all other outputs of a project) throughout the different stages of their life cycle. We can easily imagine that during the active phase of a project, data is only accessible to the partners of the project, or that it may not be worth sharing all data (raw or derived) and therefore it might not be worth attributing a DOI. DMP is becoming a tool for researchers and also for research organization and services that want to have an inventory of the data that they are responsible of.
Some potentially missing information: the provenance of a dataset; the ontology/vocabulary that is being used to describe the data/output, persons and roles at different stages.
One last point, are you aware of the work done based on DataId ontology : I apologize if it has already been mentioned.

Objet : Re: [dmp-common] DMP Common Standards – model your own maDMP
Dear Tomasz,
I have revised the examples and would like to give you my feedback about datasets with no DOI (dataset) and no accessURL (distribution).
· In examples 3, the dataset has a DOI and the data are accessible through an accessURL (distribution)
· In example 5, the dataset has a DOI but no accessURL (distribution).
· In example 7, the second dataset has a DOI (source code) and an accessURL (distribution) while the first one (Cool data) has not DOI and no accessURL. As a result, the DMP doesn’t provide any information about how to get the data from the first dataset.
In order to cover this specific case, I would suggest to either (1) changing the cardinality of accessURL [1] in the distribution, or (2) adding a “dcat:landingPage” property in the dataset, pointing to the project page where the data are available.

Subject: [dmp-common] DMP Common Standards – model your own maDMP
Dear group members,
We have created some JSON examples of maDMPs. You can find them here:
They are based on the model that you have already seen (which continuously undergoes adaptations):
We would like to ask you to:
* Revise the examples and provide feedback
* Create your own maDMPs examples – you can either model your own scenarios to check how (and if) model supports them, or use some of the user stories from the first consultation in case you need inspiration [1]
The goal of this exercise is to collaboratively do the first verification and validation of the model and detect any problems early on. We count on your help!
Please provide your feedback through issues mechanisms on GitHub or drop us a mail – whatever is easier for you. The sooner, the better – the plan is to present the first draft of the model during the P13 in April!
In the meantime we’re working on a documentation that will complement/replace the current diagram, but we believe that existing resources should provide you enough information to work on examples/provide feedback.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Best wishes,
Tomasz, Paul, Peter
