Research Data, Data Management & Planning: Data Management Plans and Funding Agencies

Resources related to Research Data Management & Planning and Finding Research Datasets

Funding Requirements

Many federal agencies and major funding organizations have data sharing policies, which means researchers are required to share their data as part of the conditions for receiving the grant. In addition, Data Management Plans (DMP) are required by several federal funding agencies as part of the research grant proposal process.  A data management plan states how data will be created, managed, stored, accessed and shared during and after a research project. Data management plan requirements vary by funder and discipline of research. You should always check grant and funder guidelines for specific requirements.

If you are looking for somewhere to publish your data or need a DOI, please consult this page describing WyoScholar, the University of Wyoming's institutional data repository.
