Research Data Management Policies by Federal Agency

The White House Office of Science and Technology issued a directive in 2013 requiring federally funded scientific research publications and data sets to be made freely available to the public. As a result, many public and private funders also instituted directives on data sharing requirements. Below is a listing of data management policies from many of the agencies funding research at Washington University.
