This document is a resource developed for the Belmont Forum for evaluating formal Data Management Plans submitted by research teams who've been awarded Collaborative Research Action funding.
The purpose and use of this Scorecard is three-fold:
as an evaluation tool to quantitatively assess full proposal DMP responses to questions drawn from the Data and Digital Outputs Management Plan (DDOMP) template that are included in the Belmont Forum grant application process on BFGO.org;
as a training resource to be shared with potential proposers to help define expectations for data management and/or with awardees (i.e., post-award) to identify specific elements of their data management planning efforts that may be unclear or lacking; and/or
as an evaluation tool employed by the Secretariat or TPOs to access milestones and progress during mid- or end-term project review/valorization.
