Best practice in the management of research data

There is an increased emphasis from all funders that research data must be as openly available as possible.  Researchers should be aware of and follow individual funder policy requirements.

  • RCUK funded researchers should read Guidance on best practice in the management of research data in addition to individual Council's policies.
     
  • EPSRC-funded researchers : there are a number of specific, auditable requirements for the management of research data by institutions and individual researchers. These requirements came into force on 1st May 2015.
