Sharing data facilitates scientific inquiry and encourages new research by promoting the testing/exploration of topics not envisioned by the initial investigators. Policies with respect to data sharing vary across funding agencies and, at times, within funding agencies. This page is intended to assist researchers, principal investigators, and other members of the DePaul University community who need to prepare a data management plan.
General information on the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation data management plan requirements is detailed below. Please note that if a specific funding solicitation provides guidance on the preparation of a data management plans, such guidance should be followed in the grant proposal.
