Meeting the NIH and OSTP “desirable characteristics for data repositories”

October 27, 2023

Andrew Mckenna-Foster

Join us on October 27th 2023 11:00 ET/16:00 GMT for a Figshare webinar.

Funder data sharing policies have been expanding around the world and increasing the pressure on researchers and their institutions. 

In the United States, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the largest biomedical funder in the world, increased data sharing expectations for researchers in 2023. All federally funded researchers will eventually face data sharing expectations under an Office of Science Technology and Policy (OSTP) policy going into effect at the end of 2025. 

Researchers and institutions already use Figshare to share outputs from federally funded grants, and Figshare is recommended by funders and publishers as a generalist repository. 

In this webinar we go over how Figshare meets the NIH and OSTP “desirable characteristics for data repositories”. We discuss both the global repository and institutional repositories based on the Figshare platform.
