NIH Seeks Public Input on Data Sharing and Data Management

Re-Posted from National Institutes of Health Office of Extramural Research, November 30th, 2016

NIH supports wants your input on strategies for data management, sharing, and citation – the what, when, and how of data management and data sharing, as well as the standards for citing shared data and software. As described in a blog post by Dr. Carrie Wolinetz, NIH Associate Director for Science Policy, to move forward with our ongoing commitment to data sharing in the scientific enterprise, NIH wants to prioritize the many facets of data management and sharing, and consider these priorities in the context of existing data sharing policies, such as the 2003 NIH Data Sharing Policy.
