- Datasets will be uploaded to the data catalog for availability within PISCO within one year of collection.
- Full documentation (metadata) will be developed for each dataset and will be publicly available within one year of collection.
- All data will be available to the public via the data catalog within two years of collection, or at the time of publication of the main findings of the project, whichever comes first.
Exceptions and Use Policies
There will be instances where sensitive information cannot be shared prior to publication or where data summaries rather than raw datasets are more appropriate for sharing. PISCO has a formal internal process for reviewing such exceptions. Use of the data and how to appropriately acknowledge PISCO is specified in the Usage Rights section of the metadata for each dataset.
