Funders' expectations

All the major UK funding bodies now regard publicly funded research data as: 'a public good, produced in the public interest, which should be made openly available with as few restrictions as possible in a timely and responsible manner that does not harm intellectual property.' 

Data Access Statement

All publications arising from publicly-funded research require a Data Access statement. See guidance on how to create one.
