NIH 2023 Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy

FAIR Principles

FAIR data is:

  • Findable: For data to be findable there must be sufficient metadata; there must be a unique and persistent identifier; and the data must be registered or indexed in a searchable resource.
  • Accessible: To be accessible, metadata and data should be readable by humans and by machines, and it must reside in a trusted repository.
  • Interoperable: Data must share a common structure, and metadata must use recognized, formal terminologies for description.
  • Reusable: Data and collections must have clear usage licenses and clear provenance, and meet relevant community standards for the domain.
