The National Institutes of Health (NIH)—a leading funder of biomedical studies—also funds social, behavioral, and educational research (SBER). NIH’s new Data Management and Sharing Policy goes into effect January 2023. This webinar discusses the pathway to, and objectives of, this policy reform. It highlights elements of the new policy that are important for SBER researchers and non-medical IRBs and discusses how NIH-mandated data management and sharing plans and IRB protocols intersect. Lastly, it presents ideas for discussing data sharing in informed consent scripts and identifies how data repositories can assist researchers with policy compliance.
