"data collected with the aid of an SNSF grant must be made available to other researchers and integrated into recognized scientific data pools"
"The DMP is an integral part of the grant proposal. The proposal can only be submitted once the DMP has been completed."
"Its content is assessed by the SNSF ... for its plausibility and adherence to the SNSF policy on open research data."
"Submission of a plausible DMP is a requirement for any transfer of funding."
"... researchers will be prompted to update their DMP at the end of the grant. ... The SNSF ... retain[s] the right to request additional information and/or amendments ..."
"The final version of the DMP will be made available on the SNSF's P3 database."
"The SNSF therefore expects all its funded researchers ... to deposit their data ... onto existing public repositories in formats that anyone can find, access and reuse without restriction."
"Research data is collected, observed or generated factual material that is commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to document and validate research findings."
"Data need to be shared as soon as possible, but at the latest at the time of publication of the respective scientific output."
"It is not part of the scientific evaluation process. Members of the Research Council or Evaluation Panel have access to the DMPs, but will not evaluate these documents. DMPs are not sent out for external review."
"If you submit a project application under the Lead Agency process to a foreign partner organization ... and a data management plan (DMP) is required, then you will have to upload the PDF version of this DMP in the data container “Other annexes” in mySNF."
"If there are shortcomings in the submitted information ... will receive a “task” in mySNF to complete/amend specific sections of the DMP at the time of the funding decision."
"The submitted DMP is considered a notice of intention."
"The DMP remains editable during the entire lifetime of the grant. Its contents can [and should] be adapted as the project evolves."
Extra funding: up to CHF 10`000 to cover
"The SNSF expects all its funded researchers
- to store the research data they have worked on and produced during the course of their research work,
- to share these data with other researchers, unless they are bound by legal, ethical, copyright, confidentiality or other clauses, and
- to deposit their data and metadata onto existing public repositories in formats that anyone can find, access and reuse without restriction."
There is only so much you can formally enforce and check
The quality of the shared data is crucial, i.e.
1. - 3. can be dealt with, more or less, by the repository.
4. - 6. Not.
Once you have considered and written up all questions in the DMP, and follow it in earnest, you are already half-way there!
Nice trick, SNSF. But I could just adopt ...
A rational strategy:
