Document IconThis subgroup works to compile existing documentation and develop additional materials for project-specific Data Management Plans (DMPs). It will create and publish resources for generating DMPs that support research data management throughout the data lifecycle. The subgroup looks for collaborative opportunities with other groups to better understand the needs of biomedical researchers and labs.
 

2021 Goals

  1. Publish the HMS DMP Template on the DMPTool by April 2021
  2. Evaluate the new NIH Data Management & Sharing Plan Policy to prepare HMS for 2023 implementation
  3. Plan to restructure the subgroup in order to address new NIH Data Management & Sharing Plan Policy
  4. Ongoing assessment and planning for updates to HMS-relevant DMPTool templates
