NIH Data Management and Sharing Requirements Update for MSU Researchers
NIH’s new Policy for Data Management and Sharing goes into effect on January 25, 2023. This policy requires researchers to prospectively plan for how scientific data will be preserved and shared through submission of a Data Management and Sharing Plan and to implement the approved plan. Plans should explain how scientific data will be managed and describe which scientific data and accompanying metadata will be shared in common repositories. It applies to all NIH-funded research that directly results in the generation of scientific data, regardless of funding level or mechanism. This expands upon NIH’s current data sharing requirement that applies to projects with $500,000 or more in direct costs in any single year.
An MSU workgroup comprised of individuals from various campus units has been convened to consider practices and promote resources to prepare for the new requirements. The group is currently focusing on helping MSU faculty meet these requirements. Faculty should begin considering how these requirements will impact their future projects and planning for associated costs related to data management and storage in their proposed budgets for any competing applications submitted to the NIH on or after January 25, 2023.
The MSU workgroup is pleased to bring experts from the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) to share their best practices for meeting the requirements of the new NIH policy. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
Audience: all present, past and future NIH funded researchers from MSU and HFH+MSU Health Sciences are welcome and encouraged to attend.
