NIH Data Sharing with Figshare: a demonstration of getting started with data documentation and publishing

calendar icon
On demand webinar



The National Institutes of Health new Data Management and Sharing Policy is now in effect as of January 25th, 2023.

The new policy strongly encourages researchers to deposit research data in established repositories where other researchers can find and reuse the data.

During this on demand webinar, we discuss how Figshare meets the NIH’s ‘Desirable Characteristics for Data Repositories’, what types of data and other outputs to share in Figshare, and how to incorporate data sharing in Figshare into your own data management and sharing plans.

We cover the practical steps for planning including budgeting for data sharing costs as well as guidance on best practices for documenting your data in Figshare.

We also share an update on our work as part of the NIH Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative; a collaboration between generalist repositories to enhance support for NIH data sharing and discovery.
