The Advanced Computing Group (ACG) at the University of Maine supports the DMPTool, a resource designed to guide researchers through the creation of data management plans tailored to the requirements of specific funding agencies.
Login into the DMPTool: select University of Maine System and use your MaineStreet login and password.
Find data management plan requirements by funding agency (from DMPTool).
In this spring 2021 workshop recording, learn out what ACG has to offer for your research data compliance needs, including the Data Management Plan Tool (DMPTool), Maine Dataverse Network, and cloud data storage options—including Google Drive and OneDrive—for sharing your large data sets.
The Advanced Computing Group supports the Maine Dataverse Network, a secure, cloud-based repository for sharing and archiving data created by UMaine researchers. The ACG also provides technical support to researchers using the Dataverse Network.
The Office of Research Administration assists faculty and staff in seeking and managing research grants, contracts, and other extramural funding. ORA serves as applicant, contract negotiator, and signatory authority for the University, and provides grant accounting services once an award is made. They provide some data management plan assistance, particularly around grant compliance.
Fogler Library points to a wide range of grants resources available at UMaine to support the research and data collection of faculty and students on campus. These include proposal writing resources, open access publishing options (including Digital Commons and Maine Dataverse), and powerful grantseeking databases. Grantseeking workshops take place throughout the year - contact Jen Bonnet with any questions.
DigitalCommons at UMaine provides access to scholarly, educational, and creative works from the University of Maine community. It is coordinated by Raymond H. Fogler Library and is supported by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, the College of Education and Human Development, the Honors College, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Division of Lifelong Learning.
Fogler Library is working with the Advanced Computing Group to link scholarly articles in Digital Commons with the associated data archived in Maine Dataverse.
NOTE: The use of Digital Commons and the Dataverse Network to fulfill sponsor public access requirements is intended for instances when a sponsor gives its funded researcher the latitude to select a repository(ies) in which to store and disseminate their subject research results. This is most likely to be the case with private sponsors. Federal funding agencies are required by law to designate the repository(ies) to be utilized.
Because public access solutions vary by sponsor, researchers must pay close attention to proposal guidelines, award terms and conditions, and other sponsor-related communications to ensure they are complying with the requirements of their particular award. For more information about public access to the results of federally funded research please visit the US Agency Public Access Plans webpage which provides an up-to-date list of, and links to, U.S. agency plans as they are published.
