PURR has been designed to meet funder requirements, and these resources can help you write an effective data management plan and demonstrate institutional support for managing your data to funding agencies by using PURR.
Most research funding agencies require that a data management plan be submitted with your grant proposal. This list of requirements by U.S. agencies and foundations is regularly updated; however, requirements may vary within a funding agency and among different programs. Be sure to follow the directions of your call for proposals and the guidance of your program officers.
Not all data is publishable. See your funder's data management guidelines for restrictions. Learn more about sensitive data and publishing in PURR in our Knowledge Base.
