→DMPTool: Guidance and Resources for your data management plan
* Marisa Strong, California Digital Libary, firstname.lastname@example.org
A number of U.S. funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation require researchers to supply detailed, cost-effective plans for managing research data, called Data Management Plans. To help researchers with this requirement,
several organizations such as the California Digital Library , University of Illinois, University of Virginia, Smithsonian Institution, the DataONE consortium and the ( UK) Digital Curation Centre) came together to develop the DMPTool. The goal of the DMPTool is to provide researchers with guidance, links to resources and help with writing data management plans.
This open-source software tool is integrated with
federated login using Shibboleth which allows users to login via their home institutions . It is a Ruby/Rails application hosted on a SLES VM. We had a geographically distributed development team sharing code on Bitbucket.
This talk will demo the features of the application as well as highlight the development practices and
infrastructure used in building the application.
