  • Spotlight on: Using DMP Online to write Data Management Plans

    Common questions when asked to write a Data Management Plan (DMP) are: "Where do I start?", "What is this DMP asking for?" and "How do I easily work on this DMP and share it with my colleagues or research partners?". To help you answer these questions the VU provides the DMP Online tool.

    DMP Online facility provides a web-based, template-driven way of creating DMP's. It includes the official templates of a number of funding agencies (including NWO and ZonMW) and supplements or replaces completing the DMP templates made available by funders. 

    Some of the advantages of using the DMP Online include:

    • Inline guidance. For each question in the DMP, guidance is provided on what is expected in that section
    • Collaboration. In progress DMP's can be shared with colleagues to review, edit or collaborate.
    • Comments. Each question has a comments section where colleagues or reviewers can provide suggestions on how to answer the related question.
    • Export. Once completed the DMP can be exported in various formats including Word, PDF, CSV or HTML.
    • Create a living document. Most DMP's need to be updates as the project progresses. DMP Online simplifies this process and has various facilites for working with and updating DMP's.
    • GDRP registration. As of 2023 all research project need to be registered in the VU GDPR registry. This is done using DMP Online, contact your privacy champion or RDM support for more details.

    Are you a researcher in the A-LIFE or Chemistry & Pharmaceutical Science Departments writing a DMP using DMP Online? You can easy access to specialist DMP support using DMP Online.
