|Re:||Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management (PDAD&C #74)|
Canada’s three federal research granting agencies — the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) — have adopted the Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management.
The Statement outlines the Agencies’ overarching expectations for research data management and the roles of researchers, research institutions, research communities, and research funders in supporting data management. It will serve as a guide to the research community in preparing for, and contributing to the development of, Tri-Agency data management requirements. The Statement itself does not include mandatory requirements.
The University of Toronto supports researchers and is committed to ensuring that Canada maintains international best practices in the preservation, accessibility, and reuse of research data. For more information on best practices in research data management, consult the University of Toronto Libraries website and direct any questions about research data management to firstname.lastname@example.org, monitored by the University of Toronto Libraries Research Data Management Working Group.
