Managing Research Data from Start to Finish: Budgeting

This subject guide provides information on how to manage research data.

Budgeting for Data Management and Sharing

As outlined in the NIH Guide Notice Supplemental Policy Information: Allowable Costs for Data Management and Sharing, NIH recognizes that making data accessible and reusable for other researchers may incur costs.

For that reason, investigators may request funds toward data management and sharing in the budget and budget justification sections of their applications.

The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine has developed a resource "Forecasting Costs for Preserving, Archiving, and Promoting Access to Biomedical Data" that may be useful when budgeting for data management and sharing costs.
