Data Management at the National Institutes of Health

NIH Data Sharing Policy

The National Institutes of Health have required data sharing since 2003. Their Data Sharing Policy page provides the policy, guidance, a data sharing workbook and an FAQ.

For most grants over $500,000, a data sharing plan must be included in the application and incorporated as a term and condition of the award. Final Research Data "should be made as widely and freely available as possible while safeguarding the privacy of participants, and protecting confidential and proprietary data".
