Preparing your lab for the 2023 NIH Data Management & Sharing Policy? Pluto is here to help.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds over 300,000 researchers, representing more than 2,500 research institutions, medical schools, and universities. The wide variety of active grants funded by NIH agencies can be browsed at the NIH RePORTER website.
Over the past 20 years, the increased availability of scientific data has accelerated biomedical research and novel discoveries. The benefits of data sharing include improved reproducibility, reuse of high-value data such as that from animal models or patients, and validation of research results across centers, research models, and replicate experiments.
In an effort to further promote the sharing of scientific data, NIH issued the Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy, which goes into effect January 25, 2023.
In this white paper, we’ll summarize timely topics including:
As scientists ourselves, our goal in authoring this document is to educate other researchers on current initiatives and policies that directly impact their research, as well as address common challenges in order to provide helpful resources and recommendations for investigators seeking to maximize time and monetary resources while adjusting their team’s practices to meet the required standards.
