University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF


Starting in January of 2023, NIH will be implementing a new Data Management and Sharing Policy. This policy will require all NIH researchers to prospectively plan for how their scientific data will be preserved and shared through submission of a Data Management and Sharing Plan. This session will give an overview of data management plans (DMPs), dive deep into the new NIH requirements, and share local resources and tools to help you work reproducible data sharing into your research workflow.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of a data management plan
  • Identify a data repository appropriate for your research data
  • Write a data management and sharing plan that meet NIH requirements
  • Identify UCSF resources to help with the data management process
