The latest DMPRoadmap release v3.1.0 introduced a new feature: research outputs. As this will be a major change for some of your workflows, we will provide a detailed explanation in this blog post to help you prepare for the launch and feed back on anything that will make adding the new feature smoother for you.
Research outputs tab
This release introduces a new tab for plans that allows researchers to specify information about any research outputs they plan to create as part of the project. This is modelled after the RDA maDMP standard.
To automate input where possible, this uses external sources to provide standardised information.
“Intended repositories” currently pulls information from re3data.org and lets users search and filter on some of the facets re3data.org offers
“Metadata standards” integrates with the RDA Metadata Standards Catalog
“Initial license” highlights Creative Commons licences to users, but provides the complete SDPX License List on request
If you have other suggestions for integrations here, please let us know.
Project details page
In addition to integrating information from external services on the research outputs tab, there are changes to the project details page that allow users to provide information that are set out in RDA’s maDMP standard.
Research domains: Researchers are now able to highlight a primary research domain for their project. This list currently uses the OECD’s field of science and technology (FOS) classification.
Ethical concerns: Researchers can also highlight that there are ethical issues connected to the research outputs resulting from this project. When this option is selected, researchers can add a description of the ethical concerns and link to any protocols that outline further details.
The new feature is enabled on our dmponline–dev service, so we encourage you to explore the new feature there and then fill our brief survey to let us know how you would like to see this released to the live service.
