Data Tracking

To facilitate that generated data is useful to the receiving project and the research community in the long term, the Data Office will set up a tracking database, focusing on the data management plan for SciLifeLab supported projects and including information about publications and where and how data made accessible by the projects can be found.

The Data Office will work closely with the individual platforms to maintain such a database to provide a service and support both to users and platforms. Our goal is to ensure that experimental platforms will be able to work with their established processes and avoid additional work.

For the platforms, the tracking database can also assist platforms in evaluations and reporting, and help with estimating the real scientific impact of their output.
