I’m applying for an NSF grant, which I haven’t done in some time. I’m aware that data management plans are now required by most funding agencies, and have found the relevant section of the PAPPG (PAPPG Chapter II.C.2.j) that outlines DMP policy and expected content. The program under which my work falls has additional requirements, stating in summary:
‘[The data] must be deposited in a national, public data repository that publishes its contents to a higher-level data aggregator that facilitates data discovery, which should be registered with an international body that promotes best practices in data archiving and curation.’ The description suggests www.re3data.org as the international body, and also offers some specific repositories. It also gives www.dataone.org as an aggregator.
While all of these inclusions are helpful, it’s not clear if any of them provide all mandated services and meet all mandated requirements. Does anyone have experience in a similar context? Does anyone know of a repository that meets all of the described demands?
