Research Data Management Planning is worthwhile

Many of the researchers at the University of Helsinki that applied for funding from the Academy of Finland in the fall of 2016 used a web-based tool, DMPTuuli, when writing their data management plans.   137 researchers received funding in the spring of 2017.  Of these 64 percent had registered in DMPTuuli, which is administered by the Helsinki University Library.

Applying for funding is an everyday task for researchers. From 2016 the Academy of Finland has demanded that funding applications contain a data management plan as a separate appendix. The DMPTuuli, a tool for facilitating the writing of data management plans, was created by the Finnish Tuuli project on the iniative of the Helsinki university library.

DMPTuuli is based on the idea that the web form with templates and guidelines for different funders and organisations help researchers plan and document data management through the different stages of their research project.  This way questions about copyright, data security, and reuse of data are considered.

Get guidance on DMPworkshops

Researchers get guidance in the use of DMPTuuli and information about services and the benefits of data management in the data management workshops of the University of Helsinki DataSupport. These workshops have been very popular. Several hundred researchers have participated in them. The library is the coordinator of the DataSupport and also one of the providers of expertise.  The university’s DataSupport  answers questions about data management both during funding application rounds and outside them.

DataSupport can be reached by email at researchdata@helsinki.fi and by phone at 02 941 23000.
