Do you have questions about the new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy? This virtual office-hours style event features representatives from six campus offices with expertise in different areas impacted by the DMS policy. 

Experts from each area will host a breakout room and participants are encouraged to drop in each room with their questions and actively participate in the discussions. Questions may also be submitted in advance through the registration form or by contacting datamanagement@osu.edu.  

Areas represented include:  

  • NIH DMS Policy 101 
    • What to share and where to share it 
    • How to write a DMS plan with DMPTool 
    • Proposal preparation and budgeting for allowable data costs  
  • Special topics 
    • Sharing human research participant data 
    • Secure data storage 
    • Intellectual property and commercialization 

This event is ideal for researchers and teams who currently receive NIH funding or may apply in the future, as well as staff who support NIH-funded researchers. Registration is required, but participants are welcome to come and go as their time allows during the 90-minute session.

About the NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy 

The policy will apply to all new funding applications on or after January 25, 2023 regardless of funding amount. Applicants must submit a DMS plan describing how they will make their data publicly available prior to the conclusion of the award period. Compliance with the submitted and accepted plan will be assessed and non-compliance can impact future funding.
