Complying with Funder Policies

Many federal agencies, and an increasing number of private funders, require researchers to make their findings publicly accessible. 

Go to the Public Access Policy Toolkit, created by the Scholarly Communication Librarian and Data Curation Librarian to help researchers with:

  • creating data management plans.
  • depositing data in publicly accessible repositories.
  • depositing articles to publicly accessible repositories.

Please use the toolkit and/or contact the the Data Curation Librarian, Chris Eaker, for help with data plans and data deposits, or the Scholarly Communication Librarian, Rachel Caldwell, for help with article submissions.

Use the Data Management Guides

The Data Management Guide helps researchers with data management plans, tools, and best practices.
