NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy (NOT-OD-21-013) takes effect January 25, 2023. For a high-level overview of the Policy, see their PowerPoint presentation, Data Management & Sharing Policy Overview (June 2022).
NIH will be offering a two-part webinar series to prepare researchers and administrators for the policy implementation:
- Thursday, August 11, 2022 / 1:30 - 3:30 PM EDT; Understanding the New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy
- Agenda: In this webinar, you will learn about DMS policy expectations, the applicability of the policy, how to prepare a Data Management and Sharing Plan, and considerations for sharing data responsibly.
- Thursday, September 22, 2022 / 1:30 - 3:30 PM EDT; Diving Deeper into the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy
- Agenda: In this second webinar of the series, we will expand upon the information presented in the first webinar and dive deeper into topics including privacy protections for data from human participants and justifiable limitations on sharing data.
To register for these events, go to the NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy Webinar Series. NIH confirmed that these webinars will be recorded and available for viewing shortly after the live events. We highly encourage all researchers planning to submit NIH grants, and grant administrators, to attend these webinars to gain an understanding of the new policy and proposal expectations. Please visit the Research Data at Columbia webpage for additional resources and information, including a list of research data storage options and resources for writing a data management plan. Later in the fall, several central offices will provide additional information and resources to assist you with meeting this new data management and sharing requirement.
