New NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is implementing a new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy effective for all grants submitted on or after January 25. This new policy is comprehensive and will require most NIH grant submissions to include a two-page data management and sharing (DMS) plan.

At Washington University School of Medicine, the Bernard Becker Medical Library is the point of contact for implementation of the new policy.

The ICTS has compiled a variety of resources below to help you better understand the policy:
