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 of Canada (SSHRC) are in the process of reviewing and enhancing their data management requirements for supported researchers. As a step in this process, the Agencies have developed a draft Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management and they are now inviting feedback from institutions, associations, organizations, and individuals.

Feedback can be sent electronically to one of the Agencies.
