- I intend to archive the data generated by my BES-funded research at my home institution. Do I need to include a statement in my DMP that specifies the archive location?
Yes. You must describe how, where, and for how long the data will be archived for access by others.
- I upload all my data to an SC facility for storage; do I still need to address archival storage in my DMP?
Yes. You must comply with the SC Statement on Digital Data Management and, if necessary, obtain a letter of agreement from the appropriate SC facility. Please refer to the data management resources provided by the relevant facility.
