The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has just issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit public comments on proposed key provisions that could serve as the foundation for a future NIH policy for data management and sharing. The feedback obtained will help to inform the development of a draft NIH policy for data management and sharing, which is expected to be released for an additional public comment period upon its development. Comments on the proposed key provisions will be accepted electronically through December 10, 2018.
NIH will also be hosting a webinar on the proposed key provisions on November 7, from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. PST. Check out details about the webinar, including how to register. For further perspective on the topic, visit the latest Under the Poliscope blog post by Dr. Carrie D. Wolinetz. For questions about the proposed provisions, contact the NIH Office of Science Policy.
