Data Requirements

NSF - National Science Foundation:
- Graduate Research Fellowship program
- Division of Institution & Award Support

NSF Data Management Plan Requirements:
Proposals submitted after January 18, 2011, must include a supplementary document labeled “Data Management Plan”.
NSF data management plan requirements: for Biological Sciences

Science.gov, NSF, NIH and other federal agencies mandate data plans with grant proposals.
Start with this list:
---- Make a plan to store your data
---- Find the right medium to store your data
---- Develop a system to organize your data
---- Make sure that your data has easy access
---- Make sure that your data is safe and secure.
