The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) require that you:
- Write a data sharing plan (single page) for all projects and submit it with the grant application.
- Include any data management costs in the bid.
- Deposit data in any suitable data repository.
- Email draft plans for comment to the Research Data team.
BBSRC guidance and examples
You should refer to the BBSRC information about their data sharing policy.
It might also be helpful to take a look at a sample data management plan and sharing statement (PDF) for a BBSRC proposal prepared by the School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol. The sharing statement is on page 8 and has been made public with the kind permission of the applicant, Dr Christos Ioannou.
