How do I incorporate caNanoLab into a data sharing plan?
It is the policy of NIH that the results of research accomplished through Federal support should be made available to the public. To meet this requirement, NIH applicants are required to provide Resource Sharing Plans (Data Sharing Plan, Sharing Model Organisms, and Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS), as described in the NIH Data Sharing Policy and SF424 (R&R) Application Guide. If you are applying for nanotechnology-based research funding that requires a data sharing or data management plan, click on the link below for standardized text describing data deposition into caNanoLab that can be used in your research proposal. The suggested text is based on the requirements for NIH Data Sharing Plans, but please feel free to modify this text to fit the needs of your proposed research.
