Our monthly newsletter will keep you updated about new features, functionality, and important days for your calendar.

Short summary from November drop in session

In our DMPonline November drop in session we were joined by Dan Crane, Research Data Manager from King's College London who shared with us their usage of DMPonline. They are looking to review their guidance at the moment and start providing more feedback on DMPs. In long term they are hoping to look more at coordination with information compliance, ethics, governance - being inspired by University of Manchester. Magdalena then spoke about our upcoming user group in January 2020 in Utrecht, and IDCC that will take place in February. We also spoke briefly about our meeting with our colleagues visiting from DMPTool and OPIDoR.

Brexit and ensuring we can meet our Service Level Agreements were two major concerns in this decision-making process. After investigating options, we have decided to remain with University of Edinburgh hosting. This blog post outlines our thoughts.

Lindsey Myers shares how University of York uses DMPonline

This month we are featuring a blog post from Lindsey Myers, Research Support Librarian at University of York. 

"With limited resource it is important to seize opportunities when they arise. The team quickly realised the value of DMPonline and we incorporated it into our service provision at an early stage. DMPonline is a tool that we actively promote to our research staff and research students in one-to-one appointments, at the training we deliver and online (e.g. within our RDM online tutorial)."
