DMPTool Updates for August 2016

The crew over at the University of California Curation Center (UC3) and the California Digital Library are working hard to continue to bring big updates to the DMPTool. First off, they’ve added new data management plan templates for the Department of Transportation and NASA. They’re busy working on adding DOD (Department of Defense) and NIJ (National Institute of Justice) templates, but if you’d like another template added, please let them know and send a message here.

Additionally, they’re moving forward to create Machine-actionable DMPs. This means that institutions will be able to better manage their data; DMPs will be data mineable; and researchers can better discover data. Read more about the benefits of Machine-actionable DMPs at the DMPTool blog.
