Digital Scholarship & Research Services: Data Management and Sharing


There are new guidelines for all researchers applying for NIH funds in 2023. With the goal of fostering data stewardship and creating a cultural change for sharing practices, researchers must submit a Data Management and Sharing Plan with their grant applications beginning January 25, 2023. Compliance will influence future funding decisions. Additional information can be found here.

The AAMC Statement on NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy can be found here.
