National Institute of Health Since (NIH) required data sharing plans in 2003.
Since January 2011 when National Science Foundation (NSF) required data management plans (DMPs) as part of all research funding applications, more funder agencies and organizations have required data management plans.
The Library in conjunction with ORSP and ITS is making efforts to assist Queens College faculty, staff, and students in managing their research data to meet these requirements.
Data management service aims to facilitate research data preservation, reuse and sharing in Queens College. More resources will be available to fulfill this goal.
The definition of research data varies depending discipline and research funder.
Research data is " the recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings."
OMB Circular 110
