The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science has a Statement on Digital Data Management that focuses on sharing and preservation of digital research data. The DOE Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program has general Requirements and Guidance for Digital Data Management. Additional data management requirements may be specified in the Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). Please contact BER if you have questions about these requirements.
All proposals submitted to the Office of Science for research funding must include a Data Management Plan (DMP).
DOE ESS (TES/SBR) Proposals
If you are considering storing data with ESS-DIVE as part of the DMP for a DOE ESS (TES/SBR) proposal, you should:
- At this point, you can include ESS-DIVE as part of your DMP. You do NOT need a letter of support from ESS-DIVE for ESS proposals.
Data Management Plans
We are unable to assist with creating DMPs for any proposal. Refer to some useful data management resources below for assistance with DMPs.
