Does the policy apply to research conducted with Yale’s own funds?

Yes. In general, the policy clarifies expectations, ensures researcher compliance with federal and other sponsor requirements, and promotes best practices with regard to data management across all disciplines, regardless of funding source for reasons of consistency and fairness.

The policy applies to all research data and materials generated with the support of Yale resources, including research funded by organizations that do not have data management requirements. When Yale administers funding for any research, the research is conducted with “Yale resources” (see Policy definition). Some research may be precluded by the specific terms or conditions of a sponsored award or other agreement.
