Data Management Plans


The Data Management Plan Working Group (DMP-WG) is led by stakeholder organizations in the UK (thanks to a collaborative funding arrangement with Jisc) and is mandated with developing and maintaining a number of standard data profiles to facilitate information exchange between institutions and between institutions and funders. The DMP-WG initial scope was based on the Data Management Plans tool supplied by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC). Future work will build on this progress and develop expanded data profiles aimed to reflect institutional best practices/constraints and to help inform DMP policy at research funders.
