Beginning January 25, 2023, all NIH grant proposals that produce "scientific data", must include a Data Management and Sharing Plan.
This is a two-page document that states explicitly how the data will be managed through the life of the project as well as if and how it will be shared.
"Scientific data" is defined as:
"the recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as of sufficient quality to validate and replicate research findings, regardless of whether the data are used to support scholarly publications."
The most up to date information about the policy and many resources can be found on the NIH Data Sharing Website.
There are six required elements in the data management and sharing plans
To create a plan, you can use the NIH-provided template or DMPTool accessed via our Shibboleth sign-on. Additionally, our RDS team can advise you on your plan. Email us at ASKData@UC.EDU.
We have several UC resources that can help you with your data management planning and your data management and sharing plan
1. Open Science Framework is a collaborative research platform that you can use throughout the research lifecycle. You can use your UC 6+2 to access this resource.
2. Scholar@UC is the institutional repository. It free to all UC community members and provides long term access and finability through metadata, DOIs and other persistent identifiers.
3. DMPTool has templates for various funding agencies including the NIH. You can sign into this resource with your UC 6+2 and create either a PDF or a machine readable version of your data management and sharing plan
4. Relevant LibGuides
1. NIH DMSP Guidance Resource Project
This OSF Project represents resources that Librarians and information professionals created for guidance on the new NIH Policies
