Active Data Management Plans IG

IG

Group details

TAB Liaison: 
Jane Wyngaard
Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

The proposed activity of this group is to act as a nucleus for discussing requirements for and identifying developments needed to support active (i.e. able to evolve and be monitored) data management planning. Working groups will be proposed to carry out work on specific areas of interest.

Currently research data management plans (DMP), created at the proposal stage of a project, do not evolve and cannot be monitored in any detail. The DMP should begin at the planning stage for any dataset, evolving through its entire lifecycle and is therefore fundamental to ensuring that data is appropriately managed, archived, preserved and available for re-use. 

There is very broad interest and willingness to contribute to the work. Preliminary ideas around the concept of ADMPs and potential topics for the working groups have been identified. These include specifying practical tools and services to support the data creators and their organisations in managing and making their data re-usable and also as the data managers and funders that have a requirement to administer and monitor these plans.  The ADMP IG is distinct from, but will need to work with, many other groups including those on certification, domain repositories, metadata and preservation e-infrastructures.

Update from last Active DMPs IG session at RDA plenary in Philadelphia

Hi all,

I realise we have been very remiss in providing an update from the last plenary. We had a useful IG session reviewing progress on the two DMP related Working Groups and deciding if new areas of activity are needed. There were some suggestions to progress work with funders, map out the different stakeholders interests and pilot the Common Standard which has been released. See full notes at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_KdIbMKnA2NHyDlrr4hPg-NDxuHPRKRalubS...

We would like to hear from you about your experiences of working with the standard. Please contact us in case you have already used it, or if you're just planning to do so.
