New data requirements

Are you ready for the new data requirements for federally funded research?

The requirements for public digital access to scientific data gathered as part of federally funded research will go into effect this fall. The University Libraries invite researchers to a free webinar addressing a range of data-sharing compliance issues:

  • Open access
  • Discovery and immediate availability of data and documentation
  • Appropriate metadata generated with a persistent URL (DOl)
  • Data preserved for the long term
  • Effort to make restricted-use/sensitive data available to the public

The session, which researchers also can view from home or office, is pertinent to many researchers at UD because by October, data management plans will be required with grant proposals in many federal agencies, and federal awards made in January 2016 and beyond will require the public sharing of research data for the long term, said Kathleen M. Webb, dean of University Libraries.

The webinar, “Meeting Federal Research Requirements for Data Management Plans and Public Access,” presented by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 9, to in the Collab on the first floor of Roesch Library.
