Tips for the NIH Data Sharing Plan

In January 2023, the NIH implemented a new policy to promote the sharing of scientific data. To assist the HIRN community in interpreting these standards the HIREC developed a new initiative to share a useful related “tip” with investigators each month. 

Tip 1 Online Tools: “DMPTool”

There are multiple online tools available to assist researchers with creating a Data Sharing Plan that complies with the new NIH mandate. One example is “DMPTool”. It is a free open-source tool accessible to all within the scientific community. DMPTool is an online application that guides researchers through the process of creating a plan, utilizing a click-through wizard for creating a Data Management Plan (DMP) that complies with NIH requirements.
