It's 10 years since we launched DMPonline and we want to celebrate that milestone. Our success owes much to the users, funders, subscribers, partners, ex-colleagues and current colleagues that all create the DMPonline community. We are planning a celebration week between 16 – 20 November mixing blog posts and online events, to reflect on these 10 years and look ahead to the future. Collaboration has been key to our success; we invite you to collaborate with us to celebrate that. 

We would like to invite you to take a part and tell us what do you think is the future of DMP? And if you have Twitter please use the following hashtag: #10yearsDMPonline

Collaboration and future of DMPs!

Welcome to Friday session celebration of 10 years of DMPonline

The Canadian path to the Roadmap 

The Portage Network launched in 2015 with DMP Assistant, based on DMPonline, as the national Research Data Management Planning tool to contribute to the shared stewardship of research data and address specific gaps in national research data management infrastructure in Canada.  Over the years, we have collaborated with DCC in different capacities to improve the platform. With the tremendous help we received from DCC, DMP Assistant will be migrated to the DMP Roadmap codebase by the end of 2020. This talk will review the path we have come, and provide an overlook of the future for DMP Assistant 2.0.

We’ve got maDMPs – what’s next

RDA has produced a recommendation on machine-actionable DMPs that is currently adopted by DMPonline and other tool providers. This is, however, only one of the steps towards creating an integrated data management infrastructure. In this talk I will present various possible application scenarios for machine-actionable DMPs and will give an outlook for further developments.

DMP OPIDoR, a DMPRoadmap instance with the French touch

Launched in 2016, DMP OPIDoR has become one of the main tool used by the French research community for producing DMPs. In order to meet the needs of this growing community, while integrating the evolutions of the DMPRoadmap codebase, developments have been iteratively undertaken and have led to the addition of new features such as support for multiple research outputs. Current developments aim to enable the content of the DMP to be structured and therefore reused and exchanged with the information systems of research organizations or research infrastructures, as well as enriched and updated.
