If data sharing is not appropriate, applicants must include a clear explanation why. The data sharing plan will be reviewed as part of the funding decision. Funding Committees will assess the appropriateness and adequacy of the data sharing plan and provide specific feedback to applicants where necessary.|
Cancer Research UK recognises that data sharing strategies will vary according to the type of data collected and thus does not specify the exact content and format of the data sharing plan. We recommend that data should be shared using established standards and existing resources where possible. The following should be considered when developing a data sharing plan:
The volume, type, content and format of the final dataset
The standards that will be utilised for data collection and management
The metadata, documentation or other supporting material that should accompany the data for it to be interpreted correctly
The method used to share data
The timescale for public release of data
The long-term preservation plan for the dataset
Whether a data sharing agreement will be required
Any reasons why there may be restrictions on data sharing, for example
Development arrangements through Cancer Research Technology including intellectual property protection and commercialisation
Proprietary Data - restrictions due to collaborations with for profit organisations International policies governing the sharing of data collected outside of the UK
Confidentiality, ethical or consent issues that may arise with the use of data involving human subjects.
|Yes||2009||Yes||12 months from close of grant or immediately after publication of results ( Full Text: Cancer Research UK expects data to be released no later than the acceptance for publication of the main findings from the final dataset (unless restrictions from third party agreements or IP protection still apply) or on a timescale in line with the procedures of the relevant research area. For example, for crystallography data there is an agreed 12-month delay between publishing the first paper on a structure and making the co-ordinates public.|
With experiments carried out over an extended period of time, (e.g. population based studies), it is reasonable to expect that subsets of data analysed by the investigator(s) be made available for sharing. The investigator(s) can then continue to benefit from further reasonable periods of exclusive analysis while the dataset as a whole matures."
