Stamp - Standardized Data Management Plan for Educational Research
An Approach to Improve Cross-Disciplinary Harmonization of Research Data Management
Keywords:Research Data Management, Standardized Data Management Plan, Harmonization of RDM
While there is a strong tendency towards a harmonized, cross-disciplinary research data management (RDM) (Netscher et al., 2022), researchers require more guidelines and examples, tailored to their research discipline (Grootveld et al., 2018). Therefore, Science Europe (2018: 9) proposes developing so-called domain data protocols (DDP), “a ‘model DMP’ for a given domain or community”. Based on this concept, the project Domain Data Protocols for Educational Research designed the Stamp - Standardized Data Management Plan for Educational Research (DDP-Bildung and German Network of Educational Research Data, 2023).
Although the Stamp was designed to support researchers in educational research, we expect that RDM is rather a matter of the data processed, the methods employed, and the content of data, than of a particular research discipline or community, such as educational research. To discuss this expectation and the usability of the Stamp outside educational research, we organized various workshops with representatives from other research disciplines. In our talk at the CoRDI 2023, we will introduce the Stamp, recap findings of two of the workshops, introduce the next steps to examine the useability of the Stamp outside educational research, and draw some conclusions on how to adapt the Stamp to other disciplines and how it fosters a harmonized, cross-disciplinary RDM.
 The project DDP-Bildung was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (grant number: 16QK01).
