Excerpts from SERC's Data Policy
Below are outlines for two excerpts from a paper drawn up to document some of the challenges and opportunities of data management at SERC.
  1. data sharing policy
    • a need for a general data sharing policy
    • balance of public access vs. rights of investigator
    • uses of data
    • attribution of data
    • distribution of data
  2. data management
    • data should be inventoried
    • data should be available for centralized, cross platform access
    • data should be available for inter-lab access
    • data should be catalogued
    • data should be summarized on a regular basis
    • data management should be coordinated
