Portage Seeking Community Assistance with DMPs
New DMP Exemplars
Portage is now accepting expressions of interest for the creation of a wide range of disciplinary specific Exemplar Data Management Plans (DMPs) that will be publicly shared to offer researchers guidance for developing their own high quality DMPs. Portage and the DMP Expert Group have developed guidance on creating an effective DMP (in English and French) and are offering to work collaboratively with you to develop your DMP into an Exemplar! Librarians in particular are encouraged to reach out and work with researchers at their institutions to develop their DMPs. These Exemplar DMPs will ultimately be deposited and preserved within a forthcoming Portage DMP Data Repository.
We are aiming to develop 10-15 Exemplar DMPs from across a wide range of research disciplines, but we are especially interested in DMPs in health and bioscience fields to support COVID-19 research projects. DMPs from both past and present, as well as fictional research projects are welcome.
Please submit your expression of interest by May 5, 2020 using this Google form.
Applicants will be notified if their expression of interest submission is successful by May 12. Initial draft Exemplars are to be submitted as soon as possible but no later than June 19, 2020. Final versions of the Exemplar DMPs will be published as soon as possible, but ideally no later than mid-July, 2020.
Any questions regarding this call for DMP Exemplars should be directed to email@example.com.
DMP Exemplars Review and Development Working Group
Portage is now accepting expressions of interest for membership on a new Data Management Plans Exemplars Review & Development Working Group. Operating under the Portage DMP Expert Group (DMPEG), the focus of this working group will be to help guide the development of a select number (10-15) of Exemplar DMPs across a wide range of research disciplines. We are looking for between 6-8 members to be on this working group, and welcome both librarians and researchers, with a specific need for individuals with health and biological research experience and/or familiarity.
This working group will be co-Chaired by James Doiron (University of Alberta) and Maggie Neilson (Acadia University). Please submit your expression of interest by May 5, 2020 using this Google form.
Applicants will be notified if their expression of interest submission is successful by May 12. Working group activities are ideally targeted to conclude by late July, 2020.
