Data Management Requirements

Data should be open and accessible to all. This is the definition of Open Data. The SNSF is also behind this principle.

In practical terms, this means:

  • Data on which a publication is based must be openly accessible. It is the responsibility of the researcher to decide which data must be shared in order to make a study reproducible.
  • Data should be openly accessible at the time of publication at the latest.
  • Data should be stored in a FAIR-compatible repository.
  • Sensitive data should, whenever possible, be anonymized and thus made publishable.
