RDA P9 Active DMPs IG Follow-up Activities

20 Apr 2017

Hi All,

We had a productive Active DMP IG session in Barcelona earlier this month. Many thanks to all those who attended in person and remotely. It was a very popular session!

There’s a wiki page with all the files from the meeting at: https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/active-data-management-plans-ig/wiki/p...

The session reported on recent work regarding active, machine-actionable DMPs and suggested various topics for new working groups to take these activities further. 

Five new RDA Working Groups were proposed and are now getting started:

  • Common standards for DMPs
  • Routes to expose / publish / deposit DMPs
  • Domain/infrastructure specialization
  • Funder liaison
  • Software management plans

More information and draft case statements for comment will be shared via the RDA group mailing list in due course. If you aren’t already a member of the Active DMP IG, we encourage you to subscribe so you receive future notifications. In the meantime, if you have any questions or need assistance getting connected with a working group please let us know.

All the best,
Stephanie, Sarah & Kevin
