Dear ICPSR Data Community:

On November 14, 2016, NIH released a Request for Information (below) that "is intended to be used to inform development of NIH policies pertaining to the management and sharing of digital scientific data generated from NIH-supported research." As ardent stewards and users of research data, we encourage you to take a moment and comment on these important topics. We encourage you to share this opportunity with other data producers and users such that they may provide comment as well.

Comments on the topic areas of interest should be submitted electronically to the NIH Request for Information on Strategies for NIH Data Management, Sharing, and Citation webpage or mailed to: Office of Science Policy (OSP), National Institutes of Health, 6705 Rockledge Drive, Suite 750, Bethesda, MD 20892, or by fax to: 301-496-9839 by December 29, 2016.

NIH Requests Information on Strategies for Data Management, Sharing, and Citation

Today (November 14, 2016), in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts, NIH published a Request for Information (RFI) that seeks public comments on strategies for data management, sharing, and citation in order to consider:

  1. what, when, and how data should be managed and shared; and,
  2. setting standards for citing shared data and software


The complete RFI, as well as instructions on how to comment, can be found on the NIH OSP website.  NIH will consider all public comments before taking next steps.

Additional information about the importance of this RFI can be found in an “Under the Poliscope” blog published today by Dr. Carrie D. Wolinetz, NIH Associate Director for Science Policy.

For more information, please contact the NIH Office of Science Policy by email at or by telephone at 301-496-9838.
