Data Management and Sharing Plans
Proper data management and sharing is essential for improving rigor and reproducibility in scientific research data. Benefits of sharing scientific data include: expediting the translation of research results into knowledge, products and improvements to human health and the environment. Federal agencies have implemented requirements at the proposal and award stage in order to promote the sharing of scientific data, samples, physical collections and other supporting materials. View the Data Management Plans – Sponsor Requirements webpage, which outlines the requirements by federal agency.
Biographical sketches of key personnel are sometimes required in a specific format identified in the solicitation or sponsor guidelines. Typically, the bio-sketch will include education, appointments, research experience, publications, and collaborators. For additional, sponsor specific information, please visit the Biographical Sketch Requirements by Sponsor page.
