Data Management Toolkit @ UNH

This toolkit provides information to help researchers develop data management plans and effectively manage their research data.

Research Funders' Open Access and Data Archiving Policies

In order to promote access to research data, many funding agencies require that data produced through funder research be shared with others. Some also require a formal Data Management Plan as part of the funding application.  Search for research funders' open access and data archiving policies using SHERPA/JULIET.
