NIH Data Management and Sharing Policies
This new mandate has already raised a good deal of discussion among the research community regarding the changes and what they entail for researchers. In June, the Campus Research and Computing Consortium (CaRCC) held a Researcher Facing workshop addressing aspects of the new NIH mandate (click to access the full recording and the documents). Lisa Federer from the National Library of Medicine provided an overview of the policy, its main elements, and how compliance is monitored. She also provided practical guidance on how to choose a data repository. Kat Milligan-McClellan shared her experience of sharing and managing complex gut-microbial data from a researcher’s perspective and her perception on how the new mandate will affect her research. Tobin Magle from Northwestern University offered useful advice on how research support staff could help researchers meet the new mandate.
To learn more about the new Data Management & Sharing Policy, you can find the entire policy overview and a list of which types of research projects fall under NIH’s Data Management and Sharing Policy, including how NIH is handling the sharing of proprietary data here.
CMU Libraries' institutional repository, KiltHub, is an excellent place for researchers to deposit, share and access scholarly research. Click here to access guides for using KiltHub and learn more about its many benefits.

Upcoming Discussions on NIH Mandate
The NNLM National Center for Data Services will be holding a "Community Discussion" about the upcoming NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan Requirements on July 20th from 1-2pm EDT.
As opposed to a traditional webinar format, the Community Discussion session will consist of:
3-5 minute presentations on the chosen questions about ongoing challenges preparing for the new policy, and
An interactive discussion sessions with presenters and participants after each presentation
NNLM is seeking discussion questions from the data community and if your question is selected, you will be asked to do a brief (3–5 minute) presentation on your question during this event. Presenters will receive a $50 gift card!
To participate, submit your questions about the NIH DMSP Requirements, especially questions that may apply to others as well. Question submissions are due July 10, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern.
