Currently this DMP catalogue consists of DMP from finished projects, from a variety of European states and universities.
The DMPs were not written by their authors with the knowledge that they will be assessed by the LIBER Research Data Management Working Group; therefore we prefer to highlight the positive and remarkable parts of the document. We do not dare to criticise a document that was written unknowingly of our review matrix and purpose of this DMP catalogue.
Our aim is to provide a hub with referential DMP from a variety of subjects and disciplines. May this growing pool of published DMP be of help and inspiration to the research and research support community.
The working group members involved with reviewing the DMPs and providing an assessment according to the established review matrix are research support staff and not researchers. Neither are we accredited by the funding bonders nor certifiably trained to deliver an authoritative review.
Our aim is not to assess the quality of the DMP in relation to the quality provided by their authors, rather to assess the quality of the DMP for possible users in terms of reference, inspiration and good practices.
To establish and foster this hub of referential DMPs would be of great positive influence to the research communities we support in our institutions and eventually aid the simplification of writing DMP across disciplines.
