The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a new Data Management and Sharing Policy, in effect for grants submitted ON or AFTER January 25, 2023. With this policy, investigators applying for NIH funding must:
- Include a Data Management and Sharing Plan (DMSP) outlining how scientific data and any accompanying metadata will be managed and shared, accounting for any potential restrictions or limitations.
- Follow through with the Data Management and Sharing Plan approved by the funding Institute or Center (IC).
What you write in your plan is what you’ll be expected to do. Therefore, your plan should reflect the details of your proposal. For more information, visit the Cornell NIH page and the NIH’s Scientific Data Sharing pages or watch a recording of Cornell’s OSP roundtable presentation on the Updated NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy Requirements.
