A data policy and data management strategy has been developed for the Soil Biodiversity Programme within the guidelines of the overall NERC Data Policy. Soil Biodiversity is a particularly co-ordinated and integrated programme of research in which data acquisition/provision, integration, management and exchange will have a key role. 

The data policy has been devised to provide for the principles of data sharing, whilst at the same time allowing researchers sufficient opportunity to work up their own data and publish results. 

The data management strategy describes the data-related activities required to support the Programme, underpin project and data integration and provide for the future long-term stewardship of project datasets .
