Are You Ready to Meet New NIH Data Sharing Requirements?

ICPSR is helping with NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan requirements


ANN ARBOR–ICPSR has been guiding an increasing number of researchers through the new National Institutes of Health (NIH) Data Management and Sharing Plan (DMS Plan) requirements for all proposed research. As of January 25, 2023, NIH requires all investigators to submit a DMS Plan as part of any proposal collecting scientific data. 

“NIH is requiring a Data Management and Sharing Plan for all proposed research where any scientific data will be collected. Data sharing used to be required of very large NIH projects and now it’s required of everyone collecting scientific data,” said Amy Pienta, a Research Professor at ICPSR. “Noncompliance could impact future funding decisions. For this reason, ICPSR has created a resource page and a customizable template for guiding investigators writing NIH DMS Plans for their grant proposals,” Pienta added. 

ICPSR staff are helping many investigators planning to archive their data with ICPSR. Investigators writing proposals are encouraged to contact ICPSR as early as possible if they have questions (we recommend at least 10 business days before your application will be submitted).

ICPSR has extensive experience sharing NIH data and is home to several NIH-sponsored projects that support data sharing and archiving, including the National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program  (NAHDAP), the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA), Data Sharing for Demographic Research (DSDR), Social, Behavioral, & Economic COVID Coordinating Center (SBE CCC), and the National Neighborhood Data Archive (NaNDA).
