Data Archiving

NERC Data Policy requires that NERC-funded scientists must make their data openly available within two years of collection and deposit it in a NERC data centre for long term preservation.

NERC grant supported projects

If your GEF loan has been supported by a NERC Grant, you will have been required to produce a Data Management Plan detailing where your data will be archived.

Other projects

For projects not supported by a NERC grant, a suitable archiving location must be identified.
