New NIH Data Policy Almost Here!
Lesley Skalla, Research & Education
The new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy goes into effect on January 25, 2023, replacing the current Data Management and Sharing Policy from 2003. This means that if you are submitting an NIH grant application that will produce scientific data, you need to include a 1-2 page data management plan describing the type and format of data you plan to collect or produce, and how you will share and preserve it.
Duke University, including the Duke University Libraries, the Duke Office of Scientific Integrity, and the Medical Center Library, have been working to make sure researchers in the School of Medicine and School of Nursing are as prepared as possible for the forthcoming new policy. To support you with this process, we have provided a list helpful resources.
- NIH Scientific Data Sharing is your go-to resource for information. In addition to the original notices and supplements, there is helpful info on Selecting a Data Repository including a listing of NIH-affiliated data repositories and generalist repositories.
- The Checklist for Researchers, created by the NIH DMSP Guidance Working Group, provides guide points for researchers writing their NIH DMS plan.
- You can find all data resources available to researchers at Duke on the MyResearchPath portal. See the new page for the 2023 NIH DMS Policy or use the search box.
- Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to meet with a Duke University Libraries data management consultant. They can provide help with writing your DMS plan, advice on informed consent language around data sharing and curation practices, and assistance with end-user licensing or data use agreements.
- Use the free online DMPTool to make the DMP writing process easier! It provides funder specific templates, guidance from both funders and Duke, and sample language to use. Log in with your Duke NetID and password and save all your plans in one place. You can easily request feedback from data management staff, and your DMS plan will receive a DOI that can be linked to your ORCID.
- Get help picking appropriate data storage at Duke for your project by using SecureIt, an online tool to help match your storage and analysis needs with the sensitivity level of your data.
- If you need a home for your research data, the Duke Research Data Repository (RDR) provides open access, DOIs for all datasets, and 300 GB of preservation storage per deposit for Duke researchers at no cost.
- If you have questions about the NIH DMS Policy or Duke's implementation of the policy, please reach out to email@example.com.

The Duke Medical Center Library & Archives are in the middle of a yearlong trial of VisualDx that began in July 2022. As we continue to evaluate whether to subscribe to VisualDx in the future, we would like to hear about your experience with this resource. Please take a moment to share your feedback. All responses will be used internally, and your NetID will not be associated with your responses. We appreciate your help!
Duke Nursing Magazine Added to MEDSpace
Lucy Waldrop, Archives Assistant Director and Technical Services Head
Duke Nursing Magazine is now available from 2006 to present to users via MEDSpace, Duke University Medical Center Archives’ Digital Repository. As defined by the Society of American Archivist’s Dictionary of Archives Terminology, digital repositories are "the technical infrastructure, services, and resources for the storage and management of digital information."
MEDSpace provides access to a wealth of digital information about the history of Duke Medicine and its affiliated schools and programs. It contains nearly 700 photographs documenting the history of Duke Medicine. You can also find publications, medical illustrations, artwork, and medical artifacts.

Coming Soon: Automated NIH PAP Compliance Emails
Beth Blackwood, Research & Education
The NIH Public Access Policy mandates that all publications produced with NIH funds must have a PMCID within 90 days of acceptance and must be made available in PubMed Central within 1 year of publishing. This policy ensures that the public has timely access to the published results of NIH funded research, but is an extra step that researchers must perform upon the acceptance of the manuscripts. The Medical Library is committed to supporting researchers throughout the compliance process.
To this end, library staff have been actively working to build an automated email tool that will update researchers who are out of compliance with this policy. These emails will come from "Duke NIH Public Access Compliance" (firstname.lastname@example.org) and will include action items, resources, and contacts to help researchers become compliant as soon as possible. These emails will only be sent to authors and PIs whose articles are out of compliance with the current NIH Public Access Policy. There are new initiatives on expanding access to federally-funded research and a new NIH policy on creating data management and sharing plans.
Library staff will pilot this system in December, 2022, with a full launch planned for January, 2023. For more information about NIH PAP Compliance and how the Medical Library can assist, please see our NIH Public Access Guide or send an email to email@example.com.
NC Licensed Practical Nurses Association Records Donated
Lucy Waldrop, Archives Assistant Director and Technical Services Head
Medical Center Archives announces the donation of the North Carolina Licensed Practical Nurses Association (NCLPNA) Records by Mrs. Jessie Parker Smith, an LPN and member of the 1946 inaugural graduation class of the Durham School of Practical Nursing. As one of the cohorts of the “Trailblazers,” the first African American nurses hired by Duke, she remained a nurse at Duke for over 40 years.
The NCLPNA collection documents the predominately African American professional nursing group’s work. It is comprised of their administrative records including subject files, financial and property records, meeting minutes, reports, printed materials, continuing education and conference materials, committee records, membership materials, and documentation pertaining to the start of the NCLPNA.
Check back for an announcement once this collection is processed and opened to researchers!
