NLM-Scrubber is a freely available clinical text de-identification tool. Its goal is to produce HIPAA compliant deidentified health information for scientific use.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is implementing a new policy to further their efforts to improve the reproducibility and reliability of NIH-funded research through effective and efficient data management and data sharing practices. This policy, NOT-OD-21-013, is effective January 25, 2023, and it applies to “all research, funded or conducted in whole or in part by NIH, that results in the generation of scientific data.”
Key points of this policy:
DMPTool is an easy to use, browser-based resource that helps demystify the process of drafting data management plans (DMPs) and data management and sharing plans (DMSPs). I particularly recommend it for those new to writing data management and sharing plans.
DMPTool has developed a template plan to meet 2023 NIH DMSP requirements. Community-developed guidance and sample language is available in the DMPTool by logging in and selecting the “NIH-GEN DMSP (Forthcoming 2023) template” from the Create Plan section.
DMPTool gives step-by-step instructions and guidance, allowing you to:
→ Create ready-to-use DMPs and DMSPs for specific grant-funding agencies including the NIH.
→ Satisfy funder requirements for DMPs and DMSPs, including those that require machine-actionable or machine-readable plans.
DMPTool also provides a convenient starting point for DMP writers, because resources such as funding agency guidelines, advice for principal investigators, and even sample DMPs are available on the site.
