How can I use it?

There are two ways of creating a DMP:

  • the “Wizard”, and
  • the “Expert”.

DMP Wizard combines the most necessary fields of the DMP template and the Data Description template. It is an easy way of starting a DMP and completing a Dataset Description. The downside when using the Wizard is that it only supports one Dataset Description. To add more datasets documentation, someone must open the DMP from DMP Expert.

DMP expert contains extra fields for describing the project, grant, funding, contributors and associations between DMP authors, etc. DMP Expert is advised for use when further modification and personalization is to take place.

ARGOS can be used for:

A. viewing/ consulting publicly released DMPs and Dataset Descriptions or Projects corresponding to DMPs
The tool offers options for publishing DMPs in two modes, private or public. To view public DMPs and Dataset Descriptions, there is no need for login to the platform.
B. writing and publishing a DMP
The tool helps researchers comply with mandates that may be attached to their grant proposal/ project funding. They can therefore choose from the most suitable to their needs template from the Dataset Descriptions collection and proceed with answering the corresponding questions. Once finalized, researchers can assign a DOI to their DMP, publish and eventually cite it.
C. practicing in writing DMPs and Dataset Descriptions
Given that Data Management Planning reflects the data management lifecycle and in accordance/ response to the increasing demand of the global scientific/ research community for training in Research Data Management (RDM), ARGOS may be used for educational purposes. Examples may refer to embedding DMP and DMP tools in specific curricula or even utilization of the tool for researchers and students familiarization with the concept and process, as part of library instructions’ sessions.
