Applying for a research grant?
You may need a data management plan!
Many grant funding agencies now require a plan for where you will deposit your data. See: NSF Dissemination and Sharing of Research Results and Public access policies of top Cornell University funders
Hoping to publish the results of your research?
An increasing number of social science journals require data submission along with your findings, e.g. American Political Science Review's submission guidelines: Data Access, Production Transparency, and Analytic Transparency
Do you have other questions about working with data?
The Research Data Management Service Group is here to help with all of these questions and more.
