Office for Research Protections     |     Education

In October of 2022, NIH issued a new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy that goes into effect on January 25, 2023. This new policy requires ALL grant applications or renewals that generate Scientific Data to include a data management and sharing plan (DMSP) and budget requests for data management activities when applicable. Penn State has assembled a committee to provide guidance and training on this new policy. Read this Penn State News article for more information about the policy, the committee, and how to request training. 

Visit Penn State's NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing webpage for more information about data management sharing plan requirements, resources to help you determine if the policy applies to your research, what can be included in the budget for data management, and tools such as FAQ, one-to-one consultations, and determining the approprate data storage option for your research project.
