Tomasz Miksa has become the chair of the newly endorsed DMP Common Standards working group at the Research Data Alliance. He will present the goals of the group for the next 18 months at the 10th Research Data Alliance Plenary in Montreal, Canada.
The group brings together a broad spectrum of stakeholders from all around the world, such as: research funders, data repositories, ICT infrastructure providers, software developers, and researchers representing various scientific domains.
The specific focus of the working group is on developing common information model and specifying access mechanisms that make Data Management Plans (DMPs) machine-actionable. The outputs of this working group will help in making systems interoperable and will allow for automatic exchange, integration, and validation of information exchanged using research data infrastructures.
This should lead to higher reproducibility of computational workflows and increase of trust in scientific data.
