Research funders increasingly require that the results (publications, data and other products) of the research they fund be made publicly accessible. For example,the White House Office of Science Technology and Policy (OSTP) issued a memo in February 2013 directing all federal agencies with more than $100 million in R&D expenditures to develop plans to ensure public access to research data and publications.
Requirements related to data can involve submission of a data management plan with grant proposals, and/or the public sharing of data resulting from funded research. Support is available for St. Thomas researchers in meeting these requirements from the Data Services librarian.
The list below includes the top funders of research at St. Thomas.
Note: requirements vary within departments/directorates, and prospective PIs should always review the specific RFP/RFA/PA they're responding to when preparing a proposal.
