“Data management” and “data management plans” are phrases increasingly heard within academic and scientific communities. More and more science journals are requiring data sharing as a contingency for publication, and in 2013 the White House Office of Science and Technology released a new policy stating:
...the results of unclassified research that are published in peer-reviewed publications directly arising from Federal funding should be stored for long-term preservation and publicly accessible to search, retrieve, and analyze in ways that maximize the impact and accountability of the Federal research investment.
