Well managed data will allow:
1- Verification of published research results.
2- Reduction of scientific fraud.
3- Promotion of new research.
4- Reduction of redundancy in research.
“Proposals …. must include a supplementary document of no more than 2 pages labeled “Data Management Plan”” (NSF, 2010)
“…investigators submitting an NUH application seeking $500,000 or more in direct costs in any single year are expected to include a “plan for data sharing” or state why sharing is impossible.” (NIH, 2003)
What data are generated by your research? What is your plan for managing the data? (NEH, 2015).
