On DMPonline, Umeå University has the web address dmp.umu.se. When you log in to DMPonline for the first time, you create an account using your Umu-ID. Then you can log in using your Umu-ID.
When you log into DMPonline, you come to My Dashboard where you have an overview of all your data management plans. On your dashboard, you can edit, share and download all your data management plans. You can also see all data management plans that your co-workers have shared with you and that other researchers have shared within Umeå University. When you click the Create Plan button, DMPonline will open a new data management plan for you and save it automatically.
To create a plan, please click the Create plan button from the My Dashboard page or from the top menu. Please add a title and select a template. If you would like to use the template of Umeå University, please check the box 'No funder associated with this plan or my funder is not listed' and select one of the templates that appear. Please confirm your choice by clicking the Create Plan button.
The template of Umeå University is identical with that of the Swedish Research Council and follows the core requirements of Science Europe. It is accessible as a free-text template and as a question-based template. An advantage of the question-based template is that it provides a list with suggestions for answers for most questions.
You can also find other templates on the list of primary funding organizations, but unless your funding organization requires you to use one of them, please use one of the templates of Umeå University.
Umeå University offers two different types of templates with open or default answers, available both in Swedish and in English.
When you have picked a suitable template and created your data management plan, the tabs of DMPonline offer you a number of options to navigate through the different sections of your data management plan.
When viewing any of these tabs, you will see the different sections of your plan displayed. Click into these in turn to answer the questions. You can format your responses using the text editing buttons.
In this section, you can add funding agencies that are not on the list of primary funding organizations.
One of the main advantages of writing a DMP within the DMPonline environment is that it can be shared on different levels. Collaborators can be invited to read and/or edit your plan by inserting their email address. The level of permission can be set via the radio buttons under Add collaborator.
Besides inviting collaborators, the person that creates a DMP has also the possibility to determine its visibility and openness.
The visibility can be set on three different levels:
By default, all new and test plans will be set to 'Private' visibility. 'Public' and 'Organisational' visibility are intended for finished plans. You must answer at least 50% of the questions to enable these options.
Please NOTE! DMPonline does NOT automatically submit the DMP to your department. You must download your DMP (under section Download) and give it to the administrator at your department.
When you download a DMP, it is possible to choose, which parts of the template should be included in your download. The program offers to exclude the project detail cover-sheet, question texts and section heading or/and unanswered questions. This is because the DMP should act as a backbone and organizational help for your specific project. There is no need to mention actions which you do not take, nor give information that is not relevant for your project.
