Many research funders in the UK have policies on the management and sharing of research data. While policies vary, they generally include the following requirements:


  • Write a data management plan (DMP), usually on application.
  • Look after your data appropriately during the research.
  • Preserve and share your data as widely as permitted.
  • Include a data availability statement in publications (required for UKRI funders).


The UKRI funders share common principles on research data, but you should check your individual funder’s website for current information and guidance on data management requirements.
