Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Information and Guidance

October 2022

Data Management and Sharing Policy (DMS): Effective January 25, 2023, NIH submissions will require a DMS.

  • Grant submissions will need to outline how scientific data and any accompanying metadata will be managed and shared, taking into account any potential restrictions and limitations.
  • Compliance with awardee’s plan as approved by the NIH ICO.

DMS applies to all research funded or conducted in whole or in part by NIH that results in the generation of “scientific data.” Scientific data are defined as: “recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as of sufficient quality to validate and replicate research findings, regardless whether the data are used to support scholarly applications.”
