Here are the latest updates relevant to the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy

  • This policy applies to new applications for receipt dates ON/AFTER January 25, 2023 (see Data Management & Sharing Overview).

    NIH Public Access Policy Compliance Revisited
    Posted On: Monday, July 18, 2022 - 10:27 by Lesley Skalla

    Did you know that your peer-reviewed publications from NIH-funded grants must be deposited into PubMed Central (PMC) upon acceptance of publication and made available to the public in PMC within 12 months of publication?  This is the requirement of the NIH Public Access Policy, which mandates that the public has access to published results of your NIH-funded research.

    Here are some tips for ensuring that you are in compliance!

  • As soon as your manuscript is published, ensure that it is submitted to PubMed Central. There are many options to do this, and it usually depends on the journal where your work is published. Sometimes the journal will do it for you. Other times...

    New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy!
    Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 16:38 by Lesley Skalla

    In October of 2020, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy. Beginning in January 2023, this policy will require that all NIH researchers prospectively plan for how their scientific data and accompanying metadata will be preserved and shared by submitting a Data Management and Sharing Plan in their grant applications. This new plan goes into effect on January 25, 2023 replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. The new policy continues NIH's commitment to making sure that the results and outputs of NIH funded...

    NIH Preprints for Early Access to COVID-19 Research
    Posted On: Friday, June 19, 2020 - 18:15 by Karen Barton

    The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has launched a pilot project to test the viability of making preprints resulting from NIH-funded research available via PubMed Central (PMC). It is very important to note that these preprints will NOT be peer-reviewed. Therefore, when you search PubMed Central or PubMed (which also retrieves PubMed Central articles), you may see preprints in your search results that will display the banner shown to the right below.

    The pilot project will run for a minimum of 12 months and will initially focus on increasing the discoverability of preprints relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once curation and ingest workflows become scalable, NLM hopes to expand the pilot to include the full spectrum of NIH...

    Update for PubMed's Best Match Sort
    Posted On: Monday, January 29, 2018 - 09:45 by Jesse Akman

    At the end of 2017, PubMed unveiled its updated Best Match sort order algorithm.  Rather than sorting search results by publication date, Best Match allows you to sort by relevancy. The new algorithm incorporates machine learning to re-rank the top articles returned for improved relevance. This update builds on the original Best Match sort algorithm's term frequency ranking. For more information about the updated Best Match sort, check out this blog post from the National Library of Medicine.

    Office Hours to Assist with Human Subject Research Proposals
    Posted On: Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 14:44 by Beverly Murphy

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has broadened its definition of clinical trial and is instituting the use of a new forms packet for collecting information about human subjects research at the time of proposal submission. These changes are substantial and will impact applications (new, resubmission, or revision) and awards with submission dates after January 25, 2018.

    In an effort to answer questions related to these changes, several offices at Duke are coming together to offer office hours at the Medical Center Library & Archives (see schedule below). These are open to any faculty and staff with questions about proposal preparation or submission. General questions about these changes or office hours can be directed to ...

    NIH Statement on Predatory Publishing
    Posted On: Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 13:39 by Jesse Akman

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently released a statement intended to "protect the credibility of published research" by encouraging authors to publish papers resulting from NIH-funded research in reputable journals.  You can read the full statement here.

    For resources to help you determine where (and where not) to publish, see our Publication Metrics Guide.

    Who's Responsible for Public Access Policy Compliance?
    Posted On: Monday, September 19, 2016 - 10:11 by Patricia Thibodeau

    The bottom line is that the PI is responsible even if not an author on the article.  Any author or PI can submit the manuscript file(s) and approve the submission, but unless the submission and final version are approved, the publication becomes non-compliant within 30 days of publication.  That can be a problem when renewing or seeking funding.

    AUTHORS!  You can help the PIs by letting them know when a manuscript attributed to their grant has been submitted for publication.

    New NIH Biosketches: Use SciENcv!
    Posted On: Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - 11:32 by Beverly Murphy

    Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) is a new system for creating and updating your NIH biosketch with the new format or NSF biosketch (required as of May 25, 2015).

    Duke is strongly encouraging the use of this system since it will save you time now and in the future due to its automated features.

    •    Pulls in profile information if you already have a profile in eRA Commons
    •    Uploads your publications from My NCBI’s My Bibliography or through an ORCID account
    •    Allows you to create several different versions of your profile by reusing information...
