New Data Management and Sharing Plan Requirements for NIH Awards Coming Soon! 
Effective January 25, 2023, prospective NIH grant and contract applications will be required to include a two-page plan outlining how scientific data will be managed and shared. Adherence to the plan will become a term and condition of the award. While NIH has required data management plans for some time, the new policy prioritizes the sharing of research data and making it publicly available, which will likely be a shift for many researchers at UCSF. To keep the research community informed, the UCSF Library and the Office of Sponsored Research have joined forces to provide guidance and resources on the NIH DMS Policy webpage. Additionally, a group of UCSF faculty and administrative stakeholders is working to align current data management and sharing procedures and guidance to ensure consistency in practices and compliance with the final policy. For questions or suggestions email Data Services Librarian Ariel Deardorff at [email protected]

Policy and Guidance:

  • Notice: iEdison scheduled downtime August 2-8 due to transition from eRA to NIST (NOT-OD-22-158).
  • Notice: AHRQ changes minimum effort requirements for surgeons with active surgical duties applying for individual mentored K awards (NOT-HS-22-018).
