How to Submit Data to FaceBase 3
The FaceBase repository is open for data submissions from the craniofacial research community.
Submit your data for review
Please fill out the following form to let us know of your interest in contributing data to our repository. The FaceBase Consortium will review your application and may contact you for more information.
Please review the following information about our data policies and priorities before filling out the form:
- Data Access Policies: This page includes important information about our open and controlled policies for data (in brief, data is generally open unless it contains human data with information that could identify subjects. In that case, access is controlled and requires a formal request process.)
- Current Data Priorities: This page describes types of data that have been identified as being particularly desirable for our repository to increase its usefulness to the community.
Note: In the Data Submission Form, you will be asked to refer to the Current Data Priorities page and include a justification for how your data is within scope.
If your data is derived from human subjects
if any of your data is derived from human subjects, FaceBase will require demonstration that the participants have consented to having their data shared publicly, through controlled access. The submitting institution is required to submit an Institutional Certification verifying this information.
For institutions outside the United States interested in submitting human data, there is an IRB process in place that you can follow.
