Abstract: The presentation gives an overview of the software design process of DataWiz II, an online assistant for research data management in psychology. PsyCuraDat is solving the question of how curation criteria for psychological research are defined. But how can we encourage researchers to actually use these criteria when they document their work? After all, documenting research data can be tedious if it feels like filling out a blank spreadsheet. That's where DataWiz comes in. Based on lessons learned from the first version of DataWiz, the main design goal is to provide major usability improvements. An iterative user-centered design process was chosen to make sure all project members share the same product vision. With the help of personas, i.e. fictional characters who might use the tool, the users' perspective matters most in all design decisions. To avoid getting lost in feature arguments, the user's journey through DataWiz is told in agile user stories. The user stories are then implemented in an early interactive throwaway prototype that can easily be usability tested. Finally, the presentation gives an outlook for the next steps necessary towards the final product.
