Using Data Collections
Data collections are a curated set of GUDMAP data collected into one easily citable and referenced location with a permanent identifier (DOI), usually for the purposes of:
- A publication. A collection can consolidate all of the source data related to a paper - not just the low resolution images available within a paper. Readers can unambiguously obtain full quality, source data that was referenced in the paper, which translates to repeatable experiments.
- A collaboration between multiple projects. A data collection can help ensure that all parties are working with the exact same data and protocols.

If you are a GUDMAP project publishing a paper, please:
- Create and reference a “Data Collection” for data included in your paper and any additional data you wish to be considered relevant to the published project.
- Refer to Citing GUDMAP to learn how to add your data citation in the bibliography section, and how to cite your data collection in the manuscript.
