Data curation exists within a larger framework of laws and policies covering topics like copyright and data retention. These obligations must be considered in order to properly care for data as it is being created and preserved. While laws may transition slowly, the policies applying to research data by funding bodies, institutions, and journals have seen significant change since the turn of the century. These policies have directly impacted the practices of researchers and prompted the creation of data curation services by many libraries in partnership with their larger institutions. This chapter examines three important categories of policies, primarily covered from the US perspective, that affect data curation practices in libraries: funding agency policies, institutional data policies, and journal data policies.
