Important Guidance: Faculty must disclose international collaborations

The University of South Carolina strongly supports and values its international collaborations.  This is exemplified both by bringing international scholars to campus and encouraging our scholars to collaborate internationally, thereby enriching the student experience and bringing diverse knowledge and experiences to our academic community. While recognizing the value of international collaboration, our faculty and investigators must be transparent about their involvement with foreign entities. Please visit the International Collaboration page on the UofSC Office of Research Compliance website to review updated resources to guide the research community on how to meet the obligations associated with reporting outside activities to federal agencies.


New NIH website will help researchers better understand data sharing policies

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a longstanding commitment to making the research it funds available to the public. This commitment is demonstrated through a variety of sharing policies that function to increase the transparency and availability of scientific data and resources. A new NIH data sharing website will help researchers navigate these policies by providing step-by-step guides, infographics, tools and resources to aid in understanding. In the case of clinical trials and public access policies, the site provides a central access point and visibility to these policies, and links out to existing NIH sites for more information. Read more and visit the new site through the NIH Extramural Nexus blog.
