First DDP Evaluation Workshop

Planning for the second feedback phase on the first drafts of the DDPs began in late summer 2020 with the participation of project staff from DIE, GESIS, and DIPF. For this purpose, a joint concept was developed, which was used for the first time from December 8 – 9, 2020, within the framework of a virtual evaluation workshop with research data management (RDM) officers.

This workshop was not so much a discussion of generally applicable requirements for DDPs, but rather a presentation of various draft projects to the RDM officers. Starting with a table on general project information and followed by several topic-specific modules, the workshop participants gained first insights into the DDP modules and their structure.

The content and, at the same time, the goal of the workshop was to determine the RDM officers’ assessments of the applicability of these modules in research practice.  The DDP team received valuable tips for the further development of the protocols and generally very positive feedback.
