DMPonline is now available to Swedish higher education institutions (HEIs) as a digital support for creating data management plans, based on the Swedish Research Council’s template, among others. Swedish HEIs can access DMPonline through the Swedish Research Council’s agreement with DCC via Sunet until October 2021. During 2021, Sunet will investigate whether there is interest in continuing using DMPonline as part of Sunet’s services.
Each public agency (HEI) decides which tool to use to develop and maintain data management plans, and DMPonline is therefore one of several possible options.
How can HEIs access DMPonline?
The person responsible for ordering at the HEI needs to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also need information about contact persons for administrative and technical questions.
How can researchers access this tool?
If you are a researcher and want to access DMPonline, please contact your HEI in the first instance.
Questions and answers about DMPonline
The service is free of charge as a pilot project until October 2021. If we decide to continue offering it via Sunet, it will become a pay-to-use service, to cover the cost. We cannot yet say what the cost will be at that stage.
Access to the enhanced package is included in the agreement. You can add questions to the templates, create your own templates, and add a guide.
You can find more information on what is included, and what adaptations can be made, on DCC’s website.
DMPonline is delivered by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. At the year-end (31 December 2020), the United Kingdom became a third-party country as a result of Brexit. A transition agreement between the EU and the United Kingdom is now in operation, valid for six months after the United Kingdom leaves the EU. This means that no further third-party country agreement is needed during this period. The Swedish Research Council also has an agreement with the DCC, covering ‘standard model clauses’, as recommended by the EU for transfer of data to third-party countries.
We can arrange a transfer to the new agreement. This means that you can test the service under the Swedish Research Council’s agreement, and that your first contact for questions will be email@example.com. Special adaptations already made for the service will not be impacted.
