Sponsor's Data-Sharing Requirements:
Government agencies (such as the NSF and NIH) often include data sharing policies as part of their grant funding conditions. Before getting underway with research, understanding these conditions can ultimately save time and stress in the long run. Developing a Data Management Plan in advance can help keep things in line with grant requirements.
"Investigators are expected to share with other researchers, at no more than incremental cost and within a reasonable time, the primary data, samples, physical collections and other supporting materials created or gathered in the course of work under NSF grants. Grantees are expected to encourage and facilitate such sharing." [more from NSF]
"Data sharing is essential for expedited translation of research results into knowledge, products and procedures to improve human health.
The Final NIH Statement on Sharing Research Data was published in the NIH Guide on February 26, 2003. This is an extension of NIH policy on sharing research resources, and reaffirms NIH support for the concept of data sharing. The new policy becomes effective with the October 1, 2003 receipt date for applications or proposals to NIH." [more from NIH]
