The Policy is an expression of PCORI’s commitment to open science. We already have policies in place to support the transparency and availability of the results of our funded studies (PCORI's Process for Peer Review of Primary Research and Public Release of Research Findings and PCORI’s policy on Public Access to Journal Articles Presenting Findings from PCORI-Funded Research). This data sharing policy now makes the underlying data and data documentation, referred to as the "Full Data Package" (e.g., study protocol, metadata, and analytic code) available for further scientific inquiry. By sharing the data generated from PCORI-funded research studies, we hope to foster scientific advances that will ultimately improve clinical care and patient outcomes.
