Data sharing is increasingly acknowledged to be a feature of a healthy scientific ecosystem, maximizing the benefits from the often costly business of collecting scientific data and enhancing discovery. Thus, timely data sharing from large research projects is an explicitly stated policy of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Making data openly and freely available and encouraging researchers to use them for additional analyses ensures the maximum return on the scientific investments that the NIH, and ultimately the US taxpayer, have made.
