Department of Transportation Access Policy: Compliance for Data

Need Help with a DMP?

If you need help with a Data Management Plan (DMP), please visit the DMPTool or contact our Digital Scholarship Librarian, Susan Parham at Susan.Parham@library.gatech.edu

Making data available

The DOT 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. The DMP must present a strategy to "deposit Digital Data Sets resulting from DOT-funded Scientific Research in a repository that enables and allows for Public Access and sharing."  Details to come, so check back soon.
