Team Research Forum: OSTP Open Access Memo & NIH Data Sharing Policy

What you need to know about the OSTP Open Access Memo & NIH Data Sharing Policy

NIH has issued the final Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy (effective for due dates on/after January 25, 2023) to promote the sharing of scientific data. Under the DMS Policy, NIH expects investigators to submit a DMS plan for review when applying for funding. Awardees are expected to carry out data management and sharing as outlined in approved plans and as a term and condition of award.

Join the UC Davis Office of Research and the UC Davis Library at 10:30am on Friday, January 13th to hear from campus experts and learn about what resources are available on campus. We will also touch on the White House OSTP Guidance to Make Federally Funded Research Freely Available Without Delay.
