The draft Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management, as well as CIHR and SSHRC policies for research data management are included below. For information on other funding agencies, please contact your subject librarian.
"All research data collected with the use of SSHRC funds must be preserved and made available for use by others within a reasonable period of time. SSHRC considers "a reasonable period" to be within two years of the completion of the research project for which the data was collected."
