Data management is the process of controlling the information generated during a research project. Any research will require some level of data management, and funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are increasingly requiring grant recipients to plan and execute good data management practices.
Data Sharing Policies
The NIH data sharing policy applies to any applicant seeking $500,000 or more in direct costs in any year of the proposed research.
