The 2023 NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMSP) will go into effect January 25, 2023. Under the new policy, applications for all funding that will generate scientific data must submit a data management and sharing plan. Key points:

  • Investigators are expected to maximize data sharing, but sharing of all data is not required or mandated

  • Investigators are expected to plan and budget for the management and sharing of data

  • Investigators must submit a data management and sharing (DMS) plan when applying for funding

  • Plans are recommended to be no longer than 2 pages in length

  • Plans will be reviewed by NIH program staff

  • Plans must be approved by the funding institute prior to award

  • Investigators must comply with the approved DMS plan.
