Preserving your data – guidance for funded researchers


Researchers who receive funding from a UK Research Council or other funder are (hopefully) already aware of the open access publishing requirements for the outputs that result from a grant.

Many funders also have research data preservation policies – these vary from funder to funder and state what must be done with the production of data management plans, metadata, and storage of the data generated from a project.

The Library Research Support Team have guidance on complying with different funder policies on the Library webpages. Where funders require data to be made openly available or preserved we offer the Research Data Repository for UWE Bristol researchers to use. Similar to the Research Repository which is for archiving outputs, the Research Data Repository is for the archiving of research datasets.

For more information about using the Data Repository or data policies, contact the team.
