Goals and Benefits

The primary goals motivating these guidelines are:

The last goal is an important aspect of the DSE project and so feedback regarding difficulties in following these guidelines, or suggestions for improving them, are always welcome. These guidelines are expected to evolve over the next several years to better meet these goals.

Since the overarching goals are greater productivity, increased impact, and better science, it is hoped that researchers will find these guidelines useful to follow in all their work, and will view them as valuable in achieving their own research goals (rather than as an onerous requirement for this particular funding source).

It is also hoped that other research groups and labs around campus and beyond will find it valuable to adopt similar guidelines. Feedback, suggestions, and reports of success or failure are encouraged from any source.
