Data Sharing Policy

microPublication journals work directly with community supporting knowledgebases during the submission process. By submitting research for publication in *microPublication* journals, authors agree to adhere to nomenclature and experimental standards set by their community database. In addition, authors agree to have relevant data sent, stored, and curated in these databases and made available to the public. Where a specific community database is not available, we will work with the authors to ensure their data is stored and available in an appropriate repository. Further, upon publication, authors agree to make materials, data, code, and associated protocols promptly available when requested by readers.

TAIRArabidopsis researchThe Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) maintains a database of genetic and molecular biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Data available from TAIR may include the complete genome sequence along with gene structure, gene product information, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, publications, and information about the Arabidopsis research community (collectively, the “Data”). Gene product function data is obtained from published research literature, community data submissions and computational prediction methods.
Phoenix Bioinformatics Corporation (“Phoenix”) owns the database and compilations which make up the TAIR materials (“Materials”) under property rights and applicable copyright laws. Phoenix manages the data and Materials and provides them in a number of machine-readable and human-readable formats on its web site, ftp site, or through its web services (“API”). Collectively, the Data, Materials, and API will be referred to as the “Service.”

dictyBaseDictyostelium researchThe Dicty Community Resource (2002-2022; dictyBase and the Dicty Stock Center) is a database whose goal is to enable resource sharing among members of the Dictyostelium research community. All information, materials and the underlying code of DCR infrastructure are freely available to the broad research and education community via the DCR hub and our GitHub repositories. For the purposes of resource sharing, DCR adheres and subscribes to FAIR principles for being Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. To implement these resource sharing principles, DCR has applied various features of FAIR using a variety of technologies, for example, the DCR is a publicly available resource, accessible for all worldwide (F and A) and DCR records are linked to multiple databases such as Gene Ontology, ENA, UniProt, PubMed (I). The data sharing policy of DCR also adheres to FAIR principles for scientific data management. DCR infrastructure is powered by containerized software that runs in a cloud environment. Our software is released under the open source BSD 2-Clause license. The source code of all DCR software is open source and publicly available on GitHub.
