Acknowledgements & Recognition

Acknowledging the use of data sets and the work of the original data producers is best practice and we require all Secondary Users to cite the data sets they use in all publications, reports and other presentations of results. We also expect, in cases where the Data Producer collaborates in a significant way with the Secondary User, that they receive co-authorship on publications, reports and other presentations of results.

Data Producers may request additional recognition for their work. They may, for example, require acknowledgement of the research team and/or of funders in publications or citation of the Data Producer’s publications. Any of these requirements will form part of the data access agreement which is signed by the Secondary User.
