NIH Data Sharing Policy
Data sharing is essential for expedited translation of research results into knowledge, products and procedures to improve human health.
The Final NIH Statement on Sharing Research Data was published in the NIH Guide on February 26, 2003. This is an extension of NIH policy on sharing research resources, and reaffirms NIH support for the concept of data sharing. The new policy becomes effective with the October 1, 2003 receipt date for applications or proposals to NIH.
