Data Management and Sharing
Statement on Data Management and Access
FASEB affirms the importance of data management and access to scientific progress. Good data practices are necessary to achieve the maximal benefit of research for all stakeholders. Technological advances are expanding the ways investigators collect, use, and share data, leading to new knowledge and discovery. The diversity of data types, research areas, and resources available make it challenging to identify data management and accessibility strategies that are practical and relevant for all life science fields. Therefore, FASEB advocates for flexible and customizable approaches that allow investigators and research sponsors to establish reasonable expectations for a particular research project.
Moving forward, the scientific enterprise will need to develop integrated community-based solutions. To that end, we’ve developed principles and recommendations that are meant to help guide your efforts to advance data management and access in the biological and medical sciences.
