Data Management Plan budget

Funding for Data Sharing

or Can I put Data Sharing Costs in my proposal budget?


National Institutes of Health

The NIH guidelines state that:
NIH recognizes that it takes time and money to prepare data for sharing. Thus, applicants can request funds for data sharing and archiving in their grant application. (See also the section on What to Include in an NIH Application.) Investigators who incorporate data sharing in the initial design of the study may more readily and economically establish adequate procedures for protecting the identities of participants and share a useful dataset with appropriate documentation.

National Science Foundation

The NSF Social Sciences Directorate says about funding: Any costs should be explained in the Budget Justification pages.
