According to the NIH, data sharing is essential for expedited translation of research results into knowledge, products, and procedures to improve human health. Investigators applying to the NIH for $500,000 or more of direct research costs in any single year are expected to include a plan for sharing their final research data, or state why sharing is not possible. Join us to learn about the NIH's data sharing requirements, and how to best prepare your data management plan for successful funding.

During this workshop, we will discuss best practices for preparing your research data for long-term open-access sharing and archiving. Topics will include file formats and file management, metadata and describing data, anonymization, intellectual property rights, and licensing for reuse. While emphasis will be on tabular data, all data types—including images, audio, and video—will be addressed.
