Databases and Data Sharing
New NIH Data Sharing Site
The Office of Extramural Research announces the NIH Scientific Data Sharing website which will serve as a central portal for resources on NIH sharing policies, how to share and submit data, how to access data from NIH-supported repositories, and more!
NIH does not endorse or require sharing of data on any particular repository/database, although some initiatives and Notices of Funding Opportunities will have individual requirements. Overall, the NIH encourages researchers to select the repository/database that is most appropriate for their data type and discipline.
