The National Institutes of Health recently announced a new Policy for Data Management and Sharing. This will replace the policy that is currently in effect on January 25, 2023.
NIH requires researchers to create and share their plan for how the data from NIH-funded or NIH-conducted research will be stored and shared. The policy encourages the use of existing repositories for this purpose. There is information for selecting a repository for data resulting from NIH-supported research on the website. Researchers are encouraged to make biomedical findings more accessible to the public, more shareable amongst the medical community, and to practice good data management habits.
