FSU Policies

FSU has defined roles and responsibilities for compliance in the Research Data Management and Public Access to Research Publications policies.


Research data management concerns the organization of data, from its entry to the research cycle through the dissemination and archiving of valuable results. It aims to ensure reliable verification of results and permits new and innovative research built on existing information.

Additionally, research data management is part of the research process and aims to make the research process as efficient as possible in order to meet expectations and requirements of the university, research funders, and legislation.

This is the DataONE Data Lifecycle. It identifies the phases that research data goes through throughout a typical research project. FSU Libraries staff can provide you with resources and information about managing data throughout this life cycle.
