DMS costs should be included in the budgets of NIH grants application and must be labeled as “Data Management and Sharing Costs”:
Include a brief budget justification including type and amount of scientific data to be preserved and shared, the name of the repository to be used, and general cost categories. The justification must be labeled as “Data Management and Sharing Justification” and should be no more than half a page.
All allowable costs submitted in the budget requests must be incurred during the award period, even for scientific data and metadata preserved and shared beyond the award period. Costs submitted in budget requests in NIH grant proposals must be spent during the granting period, not before or after.
UR will be getting a University license. This will allow everybody to use University of Rochester Research Repository (URRR) hosted on Figshare, which is an excellent way to release data. If you have very large data sets, there is a storage charge depending on size of the data.
Developing supporting documentation
Formatting data according to accepted community standards, or for transmission to and storage at a selected repository for long-term preservation and access
Preparing metadata to foster discoverability, interpretation, and reuse
Local data management considerations, such as unique and specialized information infrastructure necessary to provide local management and preservation (for example, before deposit into an established repository)
