Services for Covid-19 projects
The SciLifeLab Data Centre has set up a number of tools and services to help with the collaborative work in granted projects. Some of the things available for the work in your projects are:
- Slack is a system for fast paced, dynamic, interactive discussions. Anyone in the wider SciLifeLab community can become a member of our workspace: sign up at https://scilifelab.slack.com/signup or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In Confluence, we can set up a collaborative workspace for your project, where you can share and edit information, documents, manage tasks and project plans, and much else.
- For sharing and storage of larger files we provide you with a Nextcloud solution, all granted projects will be able to use this Dropbox style file sharing option for their files and data.
- The SciLifeLab Data Repository, powered by Figshare is a repository where you can publish any kind of data, documents, figures, presentations, etc. You can add license for how to use the material, and you will get a permanent DOI for each submission. This is a great way to share material, it has version control, and you can work on submissions until you actively choose to publish. This is not a system for sharing data within a project – for that, use Confluence. It is a system for publishing material. For a good example of how it can be used, take a look at the NIH data repository.
- We also encourage all granted projects to set up Data management plans(DMPs), to facilitate the SciLifeLab commitment to open science, sharing and tracking of data and resources. We provide templates and a software system to manage such plans, the SciLifeLab instance of the Data Stewardship Wizard. Go to https://dsw.scilifelab.se to register an account. See Data Stewardship Wizard user guide.
