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. All proposals submitted to the Office of Science for research funding must include a Data Management Plan (DMP).
Here are some useful data management resources:
DOE Data Management Plans – Suggested elements for a Data Management Plan for DOE proposals.
DMP Tool – A service offered by the California Digital Library to create, review and share data management plans that meet institutional requirements.
Data Management Best Practices – A set of best practice documents compiled by the ORNL DAAC.
Data Management Planning – Data management resources compiled by DataONE.
Here is a list of related open-source software developed for archiving and using scientific data.
NGEE Tropics Archive – The NGEE-Tropics archive service supports the NGEE Tropics project. It is a place to upload datasets and metadata.
Metacat – Metacat is an open source metadata catalog and data repository targeting scientific data, particularly from environmental science and ecology.
