How to comply with EPSRC data expectations
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) ‘Policy Framework on Research Data’ identifies research data as a ‘public good and produced in the public interest’ that should be managed and shared in order to protect and maximise the investment made in its creation.
Both the University and its researchers are required to adhere to a set of nine expectations concerning the management and provision of access to EPSRC-funded research data. The University is developing the infrastructure, support services/tools and policies to enable the institution and its researchers to meet these requirements
If you are publishing a research paper on or after 1 May 2015 then compliance with the EPSRC expectations are within scope of your research.
The EPSRC shall be assessing compliance with these expectations for research outputs published on or after the 1 May 2015.
