Data Policy Compliance
NEW UPDATE: NIH's recent draft policy for data management and sharing will apply to all research funded or conducted by NIH that results in the generation of scientific data. Join us to discuss the draft policy and supplemental guidance, such as allowable costs and data plan elements. Understand the new requirements that may affect your grant submissions!
Policies are one way funders, publishers and institutions are encouraging and requiring data sharing. Many agencies require research data produced as part of a funded project to be made publicly available, and many have instituted requirements for data sharing and formal data management plans.
In this session we will define the concept of policy as it relates to research data management, and provide an overview of the distinction between:
- Government strategies and policies for supporting data sharing and access
- Journals’ policies for making data available to readers
- Institution level policies for research data management infrastructure across the entire research data lifecycle
Audience: This session is aimed at Harvard Medical School on-quad affiliates (HMS/HSDM/HSPH).
