NERC is committed to supporting open science. The NERC Data Policy mandates that data generated through its funded activities are properly managed to ensure their long-term availability, but there are a host of other benefits of depositing your data with us:

  • increased visibility and transparency of your research
  • ensuring that you meet your funder and publisher requirements
  • opening the door to collaborative science
  • guaranteed security and integrity of your data
  • enabling your data to become citeable

The Environmental Data Service (EDS) is there to help, support and advise you on how to prepare data for submission. We support the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data principles, ensuring the long-term storage and dissemination of the data.
