Important Drop Ins: NIH’s Data Management & Sharing Policies! Last Chance for Fall, 2022 and Save the Dates for 2023

The Last NIH Data Management & Sharing Drop-in for 2022

Drop in and learn about the forthcoming NIH data sharing requirements! Bring your lunch and your questions!   November 30th, 2022, 12:00-1:00 pm. Health Sciences Learning Center Room 2158

This last drop-in for 2022 will provide a brief overview of the new policy requirements, an overview of data management and sharing plans, and touch on repository options for data sharing. We’ll provide ample time after the presentation for the discussion to follow attendees’ interests. These sessions are intended to be informal so please feel free to drop in and out as needed!

   This is all because…

  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have a new Data Management & Sharing (DMS) Policy that takes effect in 2023! (Helpful Spring Drop-ins listed below…)

Effective for applications starting January 25, 2023 and after, all NIH-supported researchers producing scientific data will be expected to submit a data management & sharing plan as part of their proposals. Updates on the plan will be expected within annual reporting and non-compliance with the plan after the end of the funding period “may be taken into consideration for future funding decisions for the recipient institution.” (NIH 2023 policy) To read more about the forthcoming policy, visit:

The NIH has a helpful FAQ for the new policy that is continuing to be updated.

If you have questions about the policy, data sharing, or data management plans, reach out to Research Data Services (RDS). At the RDS website, you can learn more about the policy,  about DMPTool – a tool that assists you with writing & reviewing data management plans, and about the data repositories available to you through campus where you can share your data.
