Increasingly, funders and publishers require broad sharing of scientific data to increase the impact and accelerate the pace of scientific discovery. NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy took effect on January 25, 2023.
The information below is designed to assist JHU researchers in navigating the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy. For detailed advice on planning a comprehensive NIH DMS plan, please see the Welch Medical Library Data Management and Sharing Policy Guide. In addition, NIH has provided sample DMS Plans; please note these plans are for educational purposes and are not intended to be used as templates. The Sheridan Libraries also has online resources available.
