Your Input Needed: Proposed Provisions for a Future Draft NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is implementing measures to update its 2003 Data Sharing Policy, issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit public input on proposed key provisions that could serve as the foundation for a future NIH policy for data management and sharing.

These provisions include:

Comments on the proposed key provisions will be accepted electronically through December 10, 2018.

To further engage stakeholders, NIH will also be hosting a webinar on November 7, 2018, from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. ET. Join the library in watching this webinar in Falk Library, Conference Room A, and afterwards participate in a discussion regarding data sharing and the Pitt Data Catalog, a data-discovery platform from the Pitt HSLS team that can help you increase the visibility of your datasets without necessarily making them public.
