Policy Statement on Open Research Data

The SNSF expects all researchers it funds

  • to archive the research data (*) they have worked on and produced during their research work
  • make this data available to other researchers, provided there are no legal, ethical or copyright reasons, confidentiality clauses or the like to prevent this
  • publish their data and metadata in existing public databases in formats that allow anyone interested to find, access and re-use them without restriction

 

(*) Research data is factual material collected, observed or generated that is generally considered by the scientific community to be necessary for the documentation and validation of research results.
