Portal serving those seeking information o … Portal serving those seeking information on the existing community developed standards in the life sciences, broadly covering biological, natural and biomedical sciences, to ensure standards are informative and discoverable, identify areas where duplications or gaps in coverage exist, promote harmonization to stop wasteful reinvention, and developing criteria to be used in evaluating standards for adoption. They currently have three registries containing information about policies, standards and databases which they are progressively linking together.
* development, evolution and integration;
* implementation and use in databases; and
* adoption in data policies by funders and journals.
Its offers a focal point for the various stakeholders in data policy by fulfilling two main roles: (i) Providing a one-stop-shop for those seeking data policy documents and related information (including information about the standards and technologies that support them) and (ii) Encouraging the exchange of ideas and policy components amongst funders, and between funders and potential fundees, ultimately to harmonize policy components where feasible.
The site is designed to provide general information about data sharing in the biological sciences and specifically in the domain of 'omics. It welcomes contributions from all. Through this website, BioSharing aims to centralize and promote information on data policies, data standards and the general process by which they are developed. neral process by which they are developed.
