NIH’s Data Sharing Policy: How to Write a Data Sharing Plan

Part of being a good scientific citizen is sharing your research data – plus, it’s a requirement for many NIH grant recipients! If you’re applying for more than $500,000 per year in direct costs, your application must include a data sharing plan. Even if you’re not required to submit a formal plan, it’s a good idea to think ahead about what will happen to your data in the long term.

This session will introduce you to what you need to know if you receive NIH funding, including:

  • an overview of NIH policies and requirements relevant to data sharing,
  • what kind of info should be included in a plan,
  • how to use the DMPTool to support NIH,
  • where to find additional help.
