The NSF, DOJ, NASA, NEH, NIH, USDA, USGS, and nearly all other federal funders require that you manage and share the data produced during a research project. Many state and private funders have similar requirements. This involves organizing, describing, analyzing, and storing research data, as well as any other information necessary to replicate the study. At the end of the project, data must be deposited into a data repository (for example ScholarWorks, Boise State’s Institutional Repository).
