JGI Data Utilization policy

Data produced and released to the public by the JGI is subject to a Data Usage Policy

As a public service, the data from sequencing projects are made available to the community by the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (JGI) before their publication in the scientific literature. The purpose of this policy is to balance the imperative of DOE and JGI that the data from its sequencing projects be made available to the scientific community as soon as possible with the reasonable expectation that the principal investigators will publish the primary report without concerns about preemption by other groups that did not participate in the effort.

The Data Usage Policy for data generated under proposals accepted before November 2018 is:

By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data prior to publication by the principal investigators of its comprehensive analysis without the consent of project's principal investigator. These restrictions will be lifted on the publication of the whole genome or comparable description. Scientists must contact the principal investigator and JGI about their intentions to include any data from this project in a publication prior to publication of principal investigator’s primary report in order to ensure that their publication does not compete directly with planned publications (e.g. reserved analyses) of the JGI and collaborators.

The principal investigator, listed on the relevant portal page, is the point of contact and arbiter regarding publication plans. Reserved analyses include but are not limited to the identification and analysis of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes and gene expression levels, gene families, gene clusters, regulatory elements, repeat structures, GC content, etc., and whole-genome comparisons of regions of evolutionary conservation or change. Manually annotated genes within the Genome Portal are also reserved. Studies of any type on the reserved data sets that are not in direct competition with those planned by the JGI and its collaborators may also be undertaken after an agreement with principal investigator and JGI. Interested parties must contact the principal collaborator and JGI to discuss such possibilities.

If these data are used for publication, the following acknowledgment should be included: "These sequence data were produced by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute http://www.jgi.doe.gov/ in collaboration with the user community." We request that you notify us upon publication so that this information can be included in the final annotation.

The data may be freely downloaded and used by all who respect the restrictions in the previous paragraphs. While still in waiting period, the assembly and raw sequence reads should not be redistributed or repackaged without permission from the JGI. When such permission has been obtained, any redistribution of the data during this period should carry this notice: "The Joint Genome Institute provides these data in good faith, but makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor assumes any legal liability or responsibility for any purpose for which the data are used." and users should be directed to this release policy page. Once moved to unreserved status, the data are freely available for any subsequent use.

The Data Usage Policy for data generated under proposals accepted after November 2018 is:

By accessing JGI data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data prior to publication by the principal investigators of its comprehensive analysis without the consent of the project's principal investigator(s). These restrictions will be lifted upon publication(s) of the dataset or two years after the public release of this data, whichever is first. Scientists are expected to contact the principal investigator about their intentions to include any data from this project in a publication prior to publication of the primary report in order to ensure that their publication does not compete directly with planned publications (e.g. reserved analyses) of the principal investigators.

The principal investigator, listed on the relevant portal page, is the point of contact regarding publication plans. Reserved analyses include but are not limited to the identification and analysis of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes and gene expression levels, gene families, gene clusters, regulatory elements, repeat structures, etc., and whole-genome comparisons of regions of evolutionary conservation or change. Studies of any type on the reserved data sets that are not in direct competition with those planned by the principal investigators may also be undertaken after agreement with the principal investigator. Interested parties must contact the principal investigator (or if the PI cannot be reached) to discuss such possibilities.

If these data are used for publication, the following acknowledgment should be included: ‘These sequence data were produced by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute https://www.jgi.doe.gov/ in collaboration with the user community.’ We also request that you appropriately cite any JGI resources used for analysis (such as IMG, Phytozome or Mycocosm) and that you notify us upon publication.

The data may be freely downloaded and used by all who respect the restrictions in the previous paragraphs, and the same restrictions apply to internal use by JGI staff and affiliates. Prior to full data release, the assembly and raw sequence reads must not be redistributed or repackaged without permission from the JGI. When such permission has been obtained, any redistribution of the data during this period must carry this notice: ‘The Joint Genome Institute provides these data in good faith, but makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor assumes any legal liability or responsibility for any purpose for which the data are used.’ and users should be directed to this release policy page. Once moved to unreserved status (after publication or two years after public data release), the data are freely available for any subsequent use, but the source must still be cited.
