The NIH Office of Science Policy (OSP) and the Office of Extramural Research (OER) invite you to join them for an informative webinar series focused on the new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy which goes into effect on January 25, 2023. This policy reinforces NIH’s longstanding commitment to making the research it funds available to the public and sets the baseline expectation that sharing data is a fundamental component of the research process.

In this series, our policy experts will break down what the policy means for you and discuss key factors to consider when sharing data.
