RDMO is implemented as a web application. It is available as open-source software on github.com. Our main use case is the collaborative collecting, editing and maintenance of all necessary information for a sustainable data management. This is done along the notion of projects, which will be defined by the users for their particular context.
The main functionality of RDMO includes the following features:
The input of all information about a project is collected via a structured interview using an interactive web interface. This includes the following functions:
The information can be retrieved in several ways:
We pay special attention to making RDMO easily installable and customisable, so that institutions like research institutes, libraries and universities can adapt it for their work. This includes:
For the further development of RDMO, we use a roadmap process in which the existing issues on GitHub are prioritised by the community. In 2022, a large number of issues were prioritised into

New feature requests, bug reports or security issues are best suggested or reported via GitHub Issue:
Of course, we also accept requests via all other communication channels.
