Modell 100A Fred S. Rosen Lecture Hall

Fall 2019 Research Data Management Seminar Series


Policies are one way funders, publishers and institutions are encouraging and requiring data sharing. Many agencies require research data produced as part of a funded project to be made publicly available, and many have instituted requirements for data sharing and formal data management plans. In this session we will define the concept of policy as it relates to research data management, and provide an overview of the distinction between:

  • Government strategies and policies for supporting data sharing and access.
  • Journals’ policies for making data available to readers.
  • Institution level policies for research data management infrastructure across the entire research data lifecycle.
