More and more funding bodies asking to make the findings of publicly funded scientific research freely available. However typically they provide limited infrastructure or recommendations as to how this should actually happen. I was wondering what type of data sharing statement researchers are (or should) be including within their grant proposals? Below is an example of how this could look. However, it provides no indication of how this could actually take place, for example via wikis, hosting on sourceforge, google code etc. It also does not imply timing, for example, this happens live, or when the grant is finished. Should the infrastructure and timing also be included?
