the art of getting there: a journey toward data sharing



A practical discussion about the implementation of resources and services to support research data management and sharing at the local level. Full Session Abstract: NIH has issued the Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy (effective January 25, 2023) to promote the sharing of scientific data. The stated justification is that sharing scientific data accelerates biomedical research discovery, in part, by enabling validation of research results, providing accessibility to high-value datasets, and promoting data reuse for future research studies. This new policy has been described as a “seismic” change in NIH data sharing requirements. While many scientists support the principles of open science, many are also worried about the logistical challenges of compliance. Paradoxically, the policy may make the sharing of some data types more restrictive than current practice. This panel will discuss the principles, background and logistical implications of the new policy. Panelists will discuss national data repository efforts to support data sharing, along with practical guidance on implementing the policy at your institution. The panel will include ample time for questions and discussion.
