Welcome to DMPonline hosted by DCC Edinburgh

Access – create an account

First time user:

  • Please follow the steps outlined in the manual to get access to DMPonline
  • Do not fill in your WUR credentials in the 'Email' and 'Password' fields visible on this page. Only fill in your WUR credentials after clicking on 'sign in with your institutional credentials'.
  • After the previous step, you are required to create a separate DMPonline account (do not use your WUR password). The separate DMPonline account allows you access if you do not have an institutional account anymore. You are not required to remember the password for your separate DMPonline account as you can reset it using the email address you provide, it is therefore advised to create a very long and random password.
  • From now on you can access DMPonline by clicking on 'sign in with your institutional credentials' followed by providing your WUR credentials.
