DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN REQUIRED AT APPLICATION? All applicants are required to submit a plan.
HELP WITH COSTS? Yes – costs associated with data management can be budgeted for in grant proposals, provided that adequate justification can be given for these. (Note: this consistutes a change to CRUK policy: until recently, no specific funding was available for data sharing.)
DATA DEPOSIT AND TIMESCALES: Cancer Research UK expects data to be released no later than the acceptance for publication of the main findings from the final dataset, and that data be preserved and available for sharing for a minimum period of five years following the end of a research grant.
ACCESS/DATA SHARING: Cancer Research UK outlines accepted methods for sharing data in its guidelines. CRUK’s data policy encompasses all high quality data from funded research that can be shared, regardless of whether they have been used in a publication.
