Open Research Data

Research data should be freely accessible to everyone – for scientists as well as for the general public.

The SNSF agrees with this principle and will introduce new requirements in its project funding scheme as of October 2017. Researchers will have to include a data management plan (DMP) in their funding application. At the same time, the SNSF expects that data generated by funded projects will be publicly accessible in non-commercial, digital databases provided there are no legal, ethical, copyright or other issues.

For more detailed information regarding the implementation of the SNSF policy on Open Research Data (ORD), please refer to this webpage as of April 2017.

Wherever possible the ORD policy of the SNSF will be gradually applied to other funding schemes. Further information will be available on this page.
