Policy on recognition of the work of data providers

You may use the data from the Canadian VirusSeq Data Portal to author results obtained from your analyses of relevant data, provided that your published results acknowledge the contribution of VirusSeq and its partners. We suggest using the following acknowledgement sentence: "The results here are in whole, or in part based upon data hosted at the Canadian VirusSeq Data Portal: https://virusseq-dataportal.ca/. We wish to acknowledge the Canadian Public Health Laboratory Network (CPHLN), Genome Canada and the CanCOGeN VirusSeq Consortium for their contribution to the Portal, see supplementary file for detailed information" (supplementary file must be submitted as an addendum to your publication). You may redistribute the data available on the Canadian VirusSeq Data Portal under the same terms and conditions as specified in this policy. You should not impose any additional or different terms or conditions on, or apply any effective technological measures to the data, if doing so restricts the use of the data by others.

Please note that the data that is being shared is the work of many individuals and should be treated as unpublished data. If you wish to publish research using these data, you are encouraged to contact us at info@virusseq-dataportal.ca before analyzing the data to ensure that those who have generated the data may be involved in its analysis. You are responsible for making the best efforts to collaborate with representatives of the data providers responsible for obtaining the specimens and to involve them in your analyses and research. The metadata available on the Canadian VirusSeq Data Portal comprises a subset of the Canadian COVID-19 related datasets. You may potentially have access to more data through formal collaborations with the CPHLN and CanCOGeN VirusSeq members. You are encouraged to contact us at info@virusseq-dataportal.ca to obtain additional information for this purpose.
