What does CRUK expect?
Further sources of help
  • 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.
  • DATA DEPOSIT AND TIMESCALES: Cancer Research UK normally expects data to be released no later than the acceptance for publication of the main findings from the final dataset, unless there is an established alternative procedure in the relevant research area.  The research integrity guidelines state that where resources permit, it is advisable for raw data and related material to be retained for a minimum of ten years or, in the case of population health and clinical data, a minimum of twenty years.
  • 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.

Cancer Research UK is a cancer research and awareness charity.
