DMP Tool updates and changes

Thanks to a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the DMPTool will be upgraded to a new and improved version on May 29th. This new version will give you increased functionality, such as the ability to add a collaborator with equal editing rights to your plan.

There will be a transition period in the middle of next week; rest assured that we will migrate forward all of your plans both in process and completed. We will have some downtime, however, on May 28th. Here’s what you need to know:

Prior to Wed May 28, 6:00am PDT / 9:00am EDT the DMPTool (Version 1) will remain available at <https://dmp.cdlib.org/>. 

Between  6:00-10:00am PDT / 9:00-1:00pm EDT (4 hours) the DMPTool will be unavailable while we complete the first phase of the transition.

At Wed May 28, 10:00am PDT / 1:00pm EDT the old DMPTool (Version 1) will be available at available at <https://v1.dmptool.org>. You can continue to access and edit your existing plans, but you will not be able to create new plans.  The new DMPTool2 (Version 2) will be unavailable on this date as we migrate data and check that everything is working before the wide release.

At Thurs May 29, 6:00am PDT / 9:00am EDT the new DMPTool2 (Version 2) will available at <https://dmptool.org>.  All users and plans will have been migrated from Version 1. You can create new plans and edit existing plans in DMPTool2.  The URL <https://dmp.cdlib.org/> will point to information about data management at the University of California.  Formerly this pointed directly to the DMPTool.

Version 1 of the DMPTool will remain available at <https://v1.dmptool.org> for a limited time (approximately one month).   You can access and edit any plans you have already created, but will not be able to create new plans in v1; new plans should be created in DMPTool2. Any changes to plans in v1 will not be carried forward after May 28.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email the DMP Tool Team at uc3@ucop.edu.
