The current requirements for NIH Data Sharing are available here.

On February 27, 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that it will expand requirements for NIH, CDC, FDA, AHRQ, and ASPR-funded research to make any data produced to be publicly accessible.  Researchers seeking funding will be required to submit a data management plan as part of their proposals.

The proposed NIH plan likely will result in many changes to expand transparency and public access to data resulting from clinical trials.

The Research Medical Library will track the changing requirements and will inform our users through webinars, in-person departmental sessions, and posts in our NewsBytes newsletter. Click here to subscribe to NewsBytes.

You may also want to consider using the Data Management Planning Tool located here to create your own data management plan.  

If you would like to schedule a consultation with a research specialist in the library regarding your Data Management Plan (DMP), please email and a librarian will contact you to set up a meeting.
