Overview: What's New?

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued a new Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMS Policy) starting January 25, 2023.

The new policy requires a Data Management and Sharing Plan (DMS Plan) for ALL NIH-funded projects that generate scientific data. Previously, the NIH only required a DMS Plan for projects over $500,000. This policy places proper data management and reusability of data at the center of research practices so that we can all advance scientific findings and support the integrity of those findings. This policy helps researchers use best practices in data management and sharing to facilitate the shift to open science and open data.

The NIH has also created a website dedicated to Scientific Data Sharing, but these pages on the SPA website aim to provide UNMC-specific information for our researchers while also summarizing the information from the NIH. Below, we include upcoming and recorded webinars (given by UNMC, NIH, or others), as well as provide links to other resources.
