The DoD Public Access Policy has data requirements both before and after your grant is approved.
Before: Your proposal must include a Data Management Plan (DMP), which will describe how research data will be preserved, made accessible generated by the research.
After: Your research data must be placed in a digital repository named in your DMP. Dataset must be stored in "publicly accessible databases, where appropriate and available." DoD is working on establishing a metadata submission process. Details to come, so check back soon.
Where will you put your data?
Georgia Tech's institutional repository, SMARTech, may be able to house your research data. Contact our Digital Scholarship Librarian to find out what your options are for archiving your data and making it accessible.
