Portage Releases DMP Assistant Institutional Customization Guide

OTTAWA, July 26, 2016 ­— The Portage Network is pleased to announce the release of version 1.0 of the DMP Assistant Institutional Customization Guide, which allows institutions to develop a template for questions and guidance content within the DMP Assistant that reflects their specific needs and to adopt a look and feel that reflects that of the institution.

This guide was developed by members of the Portage DMP Customization Working Group (a subset of the Portage DMP Management Expert Group): Jay Brodeur (McMaster University), Talia Chung (University of Ottawa), Carla Graebner (Simon Fraser University), Alex Guindon (Concordia University), Amber Leahey (Scholars Portal), Anthony Petryk (University of Ottawa), and Weiwei Shi (University of Alberta).

DMP Assistant is a national, open, bilingual data management planning tool that provides specialized guidance to all researchers in Canada, taking them step-by-step through a series of questions to help them achieve research data stewardship.

The first iteration of this customization guide is currently available in English from the Portage website; please contact us if you have any questions.
