On January 25, 2023, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will update its Data Management and Sharing Policy to further accelerate biomedical research discovery through scientific data sharing. The policy includes two main requirements: submission of a data management and sharing plan and agreement to comply with that plan, including sharing and preserving data for the long-term. The Medical Library welcomes this new policy and supports its emphasis on translating research results into accessible knowledge on human health.
