NIH Scientific Data Sharing

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) currently requires grants with $500,000 per year or more in direct costs to explain how and when data resulting from the grant will be disseminated. Beginning in 2023, the NIH will require all grant applications or renewals that generate scientific data to include a robust and detailed plan for data sharing and management during the entire funding period. This information will need to be provided in a data management and sharing plan (known as a DMSP). 

The DMSP will be assessed by NIH program staff members, and the approved plan is considered a Term and Condition of the Notice of Award. Researchers must submit a DMSP as part of their funding application for all new and competing proposals/renewals that generate scientific data on or after January 25, 2023.
