Featured Class: NIH Data Management & Sharing Plans: Documentation, Metadata, and the “How” of Deposit

Join us for this class:
Tuesday, December 12, 2023, noon-1 p.m.
Register for NIH Data Management & Sharing Plans: Documentation, Metadata, and the “How” of Deposit*

The NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing went into effect on January 25, 2023, and requires NIH-funded researchers to prospectively submit a plan outlining how scientific data from their research will be managed and shared. The policy includes an expectation that researchers will maximize their data sharing within ethical, legal, or technical constraints, and explicitly encourages researchers to incorporate data sharing via deposit into a public repository into their standard research process.

Upon completing this class, you should be able to:

  • Write a basic README file, user manual, or data dictionary to help people understand your data
  • Create documentation templates to streamline the data deposit process
  • Understand license and use restrictions in repositories
  • Feel confident in taking the next steps towards submitting your Data Management and Sharing Plan, or complying with your already-approved Plan

Class materials will be made available to class attendees. This class will not be recorded.

If you are unable to attend this scheduled class, consider requesting a customized instruction session for your course, group, or department.

*HSLS classes are open to University of Pittsburgh faculty, staff, and students, as well as UPMC residents and fellows.
