Sharing Regimen

NIMH Data Archive repositories have a standard timeline for the sharing of data based on two different data types:

  • Raw/Descriptive (not related to the primary aims of the study)
  • Analyzed/Experimental (related to the primary aims of the study)

Please note the distinction between data that is “Analyzed/Experimental” in terms of data sharing, and data collected through an event-based recording method that requires an associated Experiment Definition, which can be either raw/descriptive or experimental/analyzed. As a recommend timeline, we expect projects to submit raw/descriptive in cumulative packages every six months, and to share raw/descriptive data after a four month quality assurance period. Analyzed/experimental data is expected when a publication on the data is accepted, or the project period ends, and shared when published or one year after the project period ends, whichever comes first in both cases.

 

For details regarding the distinction between the two types of data, please reference the appropriate data sharing language effective with respect to your project at the time of award. We main a list of present and past standard recommended language with effective periods for reference, including the most current version:
