The DMPTool now supports the National Institutes of Health (NIH) data sharing requirements. NIH requires that projects seeking more than $500,000 in direct costs in any single year address data sharing plans in their grant application. In some cases, some Funding Opportunity Announcements may request data-sharing plans for applications that are less than $500,000 in any single year.
NIH expects the data sharing plan to be part of the grant application and not a separate document. Since the focus of your project will shape how you share research data, the DMPTool provides a number of questions to consider. Not all of them may apply to your project, but are listed to help you create a comprehensive data sharing plan.
