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 data deposit process and explore these topics:

• How to write a good README, user manual, or data dictionary

• Assigning metadata to your data files to make it discoverable on the web

• Creating documentation templates to streamline the deposit process

• Understanding licenses and use restrictions in repositories
