Data Use Agreement Text
Our goal is to make the metagenomics sequence data generated by the NIH Human Microbiome Project rapidly and broadly available to the scientific community. The users of any data released before HMP publication of a paper describing the data are expected to act responsibly to recognize the scientific contribution of the data producers by following normal standards of scientific etiquette and fair use of unpublished data. Such guidelines can be found in Sharing Data From Large-Scale Biological Research Projects: A System of Tripartite Responsibility, and the Toronto Data Release Workshop (Nature 461, 168-170, 10 September 2009) | doi 10.1038/461168a; Published online 9 September 2009). A marker paper describing the NIH Human Microbiome Project and its data release policy can be found in Genome Research 19, 2317-2323 (December 2009) | doi 10:1101/gr096651.109; Published online 9 October 2009. We follow these principles and urge users to follow them as well. It is our intention to publish the work of this project in a timely fashion and we welcome collaborative interaction on the project and analyses.
Any publications arising from the use of project data should include the following acknowledgement: This project has been funded or data has been generated in part with US federal funds from the NIH Human Microbiome Project, the Common Fund, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, (and if appropriate) under grant XXXX.
