Total use of the DMPTool as of August 31, 2012:
- 2841 unique users
- 2448 data management plans
- 62 institutions using single sign-on
- 25 institutions that have customized the DMPTool for their users
A couple of things caught my eye–for the first time, there were more plans created in a single month (253) than first-time users (226). I think this means that users are coming back to create more plans, which would be a good sign. Second, there is a small but growing number of users from outside the US, including Europe and Asia. Since the DMPTool supports only US grants so far, I suppose they’re using it to create data management plans for other purposes.
We now have participating organizations from 30 states and the District of Columbia. See the map.
Here’s a graph showing overall use as of the end of August:
