NIH has a variety of subprograms and groups with their own requirements and guidelines. Additional individual calls for proposals may have their own conditions.
NIH has expected that data supporting published analysisis to be shared since 2003.
NIH considers “digital” data to be data that has been recorded in any electronic format that can be accessed using a computer. Software is not regarded as "data" but it is recognized that access to software and other tools may be necessary to to access and interpret the data (i.e. they may need to be covered in your plan).
Access to data is expected to be free.
The data supporting the main findings of a research paper should be released no later than the date of publication acceptance.
The GDS Policy applies to all NIH-funded research (e.g., grants, contracts, and intramural research) that generates large-scale human or non-human genomic data, regardless of the funding level, as well as the use of these data for subsequent research.
