Developed in United Kingdom

Published in 2000

Type: Funder


The ESRC Research Data Policy, last updated in March 2015, is underpinned by nine core principles which align with the RCUK Common Principles on Data Sharing. The grant holders are expected to generate scientifically robust data ready for further re-use. This policy aims to support grant holders who collect, produce and re-use data, by defining the roles and responsibilities of researchers, ESRC and its data service provider. The document covers the general principles and policy statements on data access and sharing, including expectations on data quality and management which we expect ESRC grant holders to adhere to.
