Funders are placing increasing importance on both the proper management and the eventual sharing of research data. In response to this movement, the Sheridan Libraries offers data management planning services to JHU researchers. Specifically, the JHU Data Management Services (JHU DMS) include the following:
Proposal Data Management Planning Support - Expert guidance preparing data management plans tailored for standards in specific fields and specific funder requirements, including evaluation of data sharing options and best practices for managing data.
Archiving of Research Data - If desired, research data may be published through the JHU Data Archive, a data repository operated by JHU DMS. A project's grant can fund data preservation, web-based sharing, and citation, and consultative support for preparing data for the archive. Researchers may also fund archiving and sharing of data from completed projects. Data are archived for five years following the completion of a project, with the option for an extension.
