iUTAH (innovative Urban Transitions and Aridregion Hydrosustainability) is a collaborative research and training program in Utah. As part of project requirements, iUTAH developed a data policy that seeks to maximize the impact and broad use of datasets collected within iUTAH facilities and by iUTAH research teams. This policy document focuses on assisting iUTAH investigators in creating and sharing high-quality data. The policy defines the data types generated as part of iUTAH and clarifies timelines for associated data publication. It specifies the requirements for submittal of a data collection plan, the creation of metadata, and the publication of datasets. It clarifies requirements for cases involving human subjects as well as raw data and analytical products. The Policy includes guidelines for data and metadata standards, storage and archival, curation, and data use and citation. Agreements for data publishers and data use are also included as appendices.
