Managing research data

Introduction to DMP

DMPTuuli

DMPTuuli is a tool for writing data management plans (DMP). It is free, web based and easy-to-use user interface customized for Finnish research organizations from British DMPOnline by Digital Curation Center, DCC (UK) and US DMPTool.

Writing a DMP helps a researcher to become aware of questions related to the collection, owning, sharing and saving of research data from the very start of the research project.

Creating a DMP is the beginning of responsible research

 A research data management plan (DMP) defines how the data will be created and documented, who owns data and who will access it, where it will be stored and  who will back it up and whether (and how) it will be shared & preserved?

Writing a DMP should be started at the very beginning of a research project and it is a vital step in a research project helping to ensure that RD are accurate, complete, reliable, and secure both during and after research. A DMP also reflects the leaderships skills of the research project.  When creating a DMP researchers become aware of questions related to the collection, owning, sharing and saving of research data.

If maintained as living documents DMPs  can also record the evolution a research project undergoes after funding has been awarded.
