Data Sharing

MWCCS Data Management and Sharing Plan TEMPLATE for Ancillary Grants: MWCCS utilizes a plan for controlled release data management and sharing. In summary, all data (including any new data collected–or generated– as part of an ancillary grant) must be shared through the consortium-established concept sheet submission process. Concept sheets submitted to the MWCCS will include appropriate details as to how proposing investigators will be responsible for either: 1) depositing their analytic dataset directly to the Data Analysis and Coordination Center (DACC) for controlled release (this dataset will need to be given to the DACC at or before the time of manuscript submission to the Executive Committee), or 2) providing secure, long-term storage for their analytic dataset and submitting a data access plan to the DACC that details how data will be shared for approved research concepts.
