Requirements from funding bodies for data management plans and open access to research data
Both public and private research funding bodies now have requirements for data management plans and research data being made accessible – if the legislation allows for it.
The requirements are that research data is managed correctly and that resources from research funding bodies are used effectively. This means that other researchers must be able to build upon existing data. A shorter version of the data management plan must often be provided in the application process rather than when the project has been granted and started.
Below you will find some of the funding bodies – public and private, Swedish and international – and their requirements for data management plans and open access to research data.
