New Guidelines Regarding Data Management & Sharing (DMS)


Effective January 25, 2023, new guidelines from NIH in regard to Data Management & Sharing (DMS) came into effect. The DMS policy applies to research, funded, or conducted in whole or in part by NIH that results in the generation of “scientific data.” Tulane has developed resources to assist NIH investigators with the DMS policy:



Both the webinar and the online course include an overview of DMS, a checklist to help develop a plan for inclusion in funding applications, and using the Digital Object Identifier (“DOI”) feature in Tulane LabArchives for making data publicly available.

The NIH guidelines, templates, checklists, training materials, and other helpful resources are hosted on the Tulane Library Data Management Site.
