About This Event

Presented by Helenmary Sheridan, MLIS, Data Services Librarian, Health Sciences Library System, University of Pittsburgh

This is an encore presentation on NIH's new Policy for Data Management and Sharing (DMS Policy) that went into effect January 25, 2023.  This Policy 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. (subject matter: secure and ethical data use)

This session will cover the "where" of data sharing through the following topics:

•  What is a repository? Repositories vs. data storage vs. data backup

•  Choosing the right repository for your discipline, data format, and legal/ethical considerations

•  Understanding potential costs for data sharing (and how to include them in a grant application)

• Evaluating the robustness of a repository
