Reasons to Manage and Publish Your Research
- Increase visibility.
- Save time: Planning for your data management needs ahead of time will save you time and resources in the long run.
- Meet grant requirements: Many funding agencies now require that researchers deposit in an archive data which they collect as part of a research project.
- Enhancing collaboration and co
- Support Open Access: Researchers are becoming increasingly more aware of the need to manage their work and consider issues of scholarly communication. The Open Data movement advocates for researchers to share their data in order to foster the development of knowledge.
Data management is the new hot topic for researchers and ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH funded research.
- National Institutes of Health Public Access It requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to the digital archive PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication. To help advance science and improve human health, the Policy requires that these papers are accessible to the public on PubMed Central no later than 12 months after publication.
- National Institutes of Health: Data Sharing Policy: Supports the sharing of research data and expects researchers funded at $500,000 or more to include a data sharing plan in their grant proposals.

- National Science Foundation (NSF): Dissemination and Sharing of Research Results: Beginning January 18, 2011, NSF will require grant proposals to include a supplementary data management plan of no more than 2 pages. This requirement is a new implementation of the long-standing NSF Data Sharing Policy.
