We are required to complete a data management plan (DMP) for OpenCare. It should be ready within six months of starting the project, and kept up-to-date. The trick is this: each dataset we produce (and use for our research) needs to be described in the DMP. So, what data are we producing?
My ideas are clear about the WP1 (Online conversation) and WP4 (Data processing for collective intelligence). These are data that start out as an online conversation, encoded in the Edgeryders database, and then get enriched by data processing. I have made a first pass – still not publishable I guess, so I am keeping it on Google Docs for now. Here it is.
What about data in WP2 (Prototyping), WP3 (Policy) and Task 5.2 (Ethics/Consent) in WP5? What will they be like? Which formats? Which metadata? Where do we archive them?
@Costantino, @zoescope, @Lakomaa, @markomanka: I guess you should each give this some thinking and address the issue in the DMP. The instructions are in the Google Doc, itself modelled on the European Commission’s template. At page 7 you find a template with the help text; in pages 1-6 I have attempted to document the threee datasets that we (Edgeryders and UBx) will produce.
