Active Data Management Plans IG


Group details

TAB Liaison: 
Carole Palmer
Case Statement: 

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.

RE: [rda-datamanagplans][dmp-common][exposing-plans] Re: [rda-datamanagplans][dmp-common] RE: [rda-datamanagplans][dmp-common][exposing-plans] An unfortunate clash in the schedule for P10

Dear All
The programme for the plenary is set so any change would be very unlikely. Scheduling of session is a very difficult process when trying to avoid a multitude of conflicts.
I'm not sure why there has been no reply to e-mails but I suggest e-mailing Lynn Yarmey (in cc) to ask why these sessions have been moved to clashing slots despite the request for it to be avoided. The TAB Liaison (Carole Palmer) can also be contacted to highlight this problem.
Best wishes

Yes - I was assuming we would want to send someone there for that reason.
Suggesting a mutual exchange is a much better proposal.
