If you plan to generate scientific data, you must submit a Data Management and Sharing Plan to the funding NIH ICO as part of the Budget Justification section of your application for extramural awards. Also, be aware that the NIH may decide to make some parts of the DMS Plans public at a later date.
Your plan should be two pages or fewer and must include:
Briefly describe the scientific data to be managed and shared:
Indicate whether specialized tools are needed to access or manipulate shared scientific data to support replication or reuse, and name(s) of the needed tool(s) and software. If applicable, specify how needed tools can be accessed.
For data management, standards usually address how data should be collected, measured, recorded, or formatted. Using standards can save time and reduce common errors. You should include information on standards that you will use in a DMP as using data standards will strengthen the data's value.
Examples of Standards:
For data, standards such as:
Registries of standards:
If there are no established standards, how will you facilitate access and reuse of the data and metadata?
Give plans and timelines for data preservation and access, including:
Describe any applicable factors affecting subsequent access, distribution, or reuse of scientific data related to:
Indicate how compliance with the DMS Plan will be monitored and managed.
Oversight will usually be the responsibility of the PI. You may consider listing a backup person as well, or any other research team members with particular data responsibilities (eg, a database administrator in your lab). Oversight includes revising the DMSP and adhering to submission deadlines for sharing data. All members of the team should have training on the DMSP. Please do NOT list any Northwell offices as responsible for oversight without explicit permission.
The DMPTool is a free, open-source, online application that helps researchers create data management plans. ZSOM/Feinstein is a member of DMPTool. When you sign up for an account, please choose Northwell Health, Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research, Zucker School of Medicine as your organization.
