Writing a Data Management and Sharing Plan for NIH Online


Have you heard of the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy but want to learn more about how to comply? Want some more guidance on writing your Data Management and Sharing Plan (DMS plan)? In this hands-on workshop we will quickly introduce the new policy and then work through each section of the DMS plan so you understand what to write and can start drafting your own plan. We will also cover how to locate DMS plan templates and sample plans, and highlight resources for learning more.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you should be able to:

  • Locate example DMS plans and templates 
  • Draft an NIH-compliant data management and sharing plan (DMS plan) for your research
  • Identify resources for understanding discipline-specific requirements and getting help
