An Easy Way to Determine Federal Funder Data Requirements

Since 2013, more and more federal agencies have begun requiring data management plans (DMPs) with research funding proposals. Each funder has slightly different requirements for what should be included in the DMP and how the data created during the research project should be shared.

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) has compiled a web resource with information on DMPs and data sharing requirements from all the federal funding agencies. As you begin to think about funding for future research projects, the SPARC resource is a convenient way to find up-to-date data requirements.
