Changes to the AAMC Faculty Salary Report
Posted On: Friday, February 10, 2023 - 09:40 by Sarah Cantrell
The AAMC released its annual Faculty Salary Report, but are no longer making a print version available. Unfortunately, the AAMC is not currently offering an institutional subscription opportunity for libraries that would provide everyone at Duke with access. As a result, individuals will have to purchase their own electronic access.
What does this mean for you?
If you are looking for current salary data, you will need to purchase your own access to the AAMC Faculty Salary Report from the AAMC Store. The cost is $50 for AAMC members, faculty and staff at member institutions (Duke is a member), and for residents/fellows. For sales support, including accessing member…MORE

The New NIH Data Policy is Here!
Posted On: Sunday, January 22, 2023 - 11:13 by Lesley Skalla, Ph.D.
The new NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy went into effect on January 25, 2023! This means that if you are submitting a NIH grant application that will produce scientific data, you now need to include a 1-2 page data management plan that describes the type and format of data you plan to collect or produce and how you will share and preserve it. At the time of the grant application, you will now need to plan for how you are going to manage and share your data. To support you with this process, we have provided a list helpful resources.

You can use the NIH optional DMS Plan format page to create your plan, but why not take advantage of the free, online DMPTool managed by the California Digital Library? DMPTool provides a click-through wizard that walks you through the DMP creation process using an NIH template along with helpful guidance from both NIH and Duke.
There are several reasons why Duke researchers should use the DMPTool:
