The DMP Assistant will be unavailable from 9am to 6pm AST on February 22nd, 2023 for a system upgrade.
Any work that DMP Assistant users have completed prior to the shutdown will be migrated to the new 3.1.0 platform, along with any other existing data management plans (DMPs), templates and user data. Users should save and/or export any existing DMPs/data that they may require during the shutdown period. Once launched, users will be able to access the DMP Assistant 3.1.0 service at the same URL (https://assistant.portagenetwork.ca/) with their existing credentials, and new users may create accounts as normal.
The upgraded version of the DMP Assistant will improve security and user experience, and come with several exciting new features, including a new “Research Output” tab that allows users to:
- Specify the type (e.g., dataset, software, image, etc.), name and a description of the output, size (if applicable), whether or not it contains sensitive information, what the initial access level will be (e.g., open, restricted, closed), and the anticipated publication date
- Select an appropriate license from the SPDX License List
- Select any metadata standards that will be followed from the RDA Metadata standards catalog
- Select the repositories they intend to preserve the object in from a dropdown list powered by re3data
