Sharing Published Materials/Responsibilities of HHMI Authors
This policy establishes HHMI’s expectations that all HHMI laboratory heads, whether based at host institutions or at HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus, will include in their publications sufficient information about their experimental methods and procedures, and make available data, software, and tangible research materials, to enable other scientists to reproduce and extend the results of all publications on which the HHMI laboratory head is an author.
The sharing of biological and other research materials among laboratories is an essential aspect of scientific citizenship. In that spirit, HHMI expects its laboratory heads, and all members of the academic research community, to make their published materials available for research use by other scientists and to handle requests for such materials expeditiously.
