USU Procedures

DigitalCommons Award Set-up

Once you receive an award from an agency with data sharing requirements, you will receive a notice from Sponsored Programs reminding you of the federal requirements to deposit publications in the agency repository and data in an appropriate, publicly accessible repository such as DigitalCommons@USU.

You will be asked to provide Sponsored Programs with a copy of the project's approved Data Management Plan (DMP). Once Sponsored programs receives your information, it will be given to the Merrill-Cazier Library and a record will be created in DigitalCommons@USU in the Funded Research Records  series to represent your grant.  The DMP will be attached and publicly accessible from your record.
