The new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) policy, which goes into effect on January 25, 2023, will promote the sharing of scientific data from NIH-funded research. Sharing scientific data accelerates biomedical research discovery, in part, by enabling validation of research results, providing accessibility to high-value datasets, and promoting data reuse for future research studies. Under this new policy NIH-supported researchers are required to submit a Data Management and Sharing Plan and comply with the approved Plan. During this webinar the speakers will discuss the value of data sharing for the research enterprise, provide an overview of the DMS Policy and implementation activities, and discuss the importance of informatics in enabling rigorous data collection and capture, management, and sharing.
