DMP Expert Group

Supporting Best Practices in Research Data Stewardship in Canada

The Portage Data Management Plan Expert Group (DMPEG) develops guidelines, best practices, and content in support of templates and guidance materials for the Portage national DMP service, DMP Assistant. The group also contributes to the development of standards underlying the structure and management of DMP Assistant templates and the exchange of DMP information to facilitate its sharing and reuse.

The main purpose of the DMP Expert Group (DMPEG) is to guide the development of Portage’s national DMP platform, DMP Assistant (view Terms of Reference). The group created the Portage General Stewardship Template for the DMP Assistant as well as the guidance text to the template questions. The group will continue to advance Portage’s national DMP service objectives, which are:

  1. To provide tools that support best practices in research data stewardship and that promote a strong data culture in Canada;
  2. To facilitate the sharing of research administrative information across research organizations and agencies;
  3. To improve coordination among local and national research service organizations; and
  4. To reduce administrative burden on researchers.
