Goal: to build data communities of practice within SUNY and across campuses
Data Management and data sharing requirements contribute to open science by enabling research that is reproducible, reusable, and transparent. Increasingly, federal funding programs are advancing open research by requiring data sharing and data management plans. Updates to the National Institutes of Health Data Management and Sharing Policy coupled with recent Office of Science and Technology Policy memo highlights the need to improve social, cultural, and technical infrastructure of data management within SUNY. This project builds on work in data sharing and research data management at SUNY being conducted by the Data Governance Task Force, ad hoc teams for implementing new NIH requirements, campus participation in external research initiatives, and other SUNY programs to establish data communities.
