Data management plans (DMPs) can play a key role in helping researchers plan for FAIR data and support the creation of FAIR data. By implementing a DMP support tool that helps researchers write DMPs and then integrating this tool with institutional services that respond to the needs identified in the DMP, the DMP can become a more useful resource for producing FAIR digital objects and especially for ensuring these are properly stored and made accessible.
This implementation story provides an insight into creating a machine-actionable DMP tool, DAMAP, at the TU Wien, Austria and integrating the tool with other institutional services, beginning with data storage provision. This effort has gained support from FAIR Data Austria, a project running from January 2020 to December 2022 to strengthen knowledge exchange between Austrian universities and develop training, tools and support services to manage data in accordance with the FAIR principles throughout the whole research lifecycle.
