DMP Assistant is an all-purpose tool for preparing data management plans (DMPs).
Researchers will be guided through best practices in data stewardship.
Currently, this tool includes a generic Portage Data Stewardship template for researchers to use. Guidance is provided to help you interpret and answer the questions.
We want your feedback! If you have suggestions on how to improve the existing template, or you would like to add additional templates based on funding agency requirements or disciplinary needs, please contact your local institution or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have an account, please sign in and start creating or editing your DMP.
If you do not have a DMP Assistant account, click on 'Sign up' on the homepage.
Please note that we are currently working on single sign-in authentication with your campus ID. You will have the option to link your existing account to your campus ID when that feature becomes available.
Please visit the 'Help' page for guidance.
The Portage Data Stewardship template is based on internationally accepted standards and best practices. It has been prepared and is maintained by a group of research data management experts from research libraries across Canada.
Organizations may provide their own DMP templates. The Portage template is the default DMP. Select templates from other organizations from the drop-down Organization list.
For funding agencies, research institutions, and other organizations, please contact email@example.com if you would like to add your organization templates to DMP Assistant.
