This guidance underpins MRC’s revised data sharing policy. It provides guidance on how best to achieve data sharing and make research data readily, but safely, available.

This guidance was produced in consultation with various research organisations and we will continue to work with those organisations to generate more data sharing guidance for specific research topics and datasets.
