GMOS-FR data policy
This data use policy describes how atmospheric data dedicated to the study of mercury compounds collected at sites coordinated by French research units (IGE UMR5001, GET UMR5563) within the international GMOS/GOS4M networks and long term observation experiments carried out as part of the French IPEV GMOStral-1028 programme and other national french and/or international programs (LabEX, LEFE) can be used. This data use policy may be subject to change in accordance with future use policies that may be implemented as part of GOS4M.
GMOS-FR data (levels 1 and 2 only) are freely available for non-commercial use. Use of these data implies an agreement to reciprocate. Institutes making similar measurements are strongly encouraged to make their own data available to the scientific community in a complete and easily accessible form. Modellers are encouraged to make available to the community upon request; their tools used in the interpretation of GMOS-FR data.
Users envisaging to publish a paper should consider at an early stage:
- To inform the GMOS-FR web portal PIs (O. Magand – email@example.com , A. Dommergue – firstname.lastname@example.org ) as well as other contacts possibly related to the data used (see in contact section in the selected dataset) about the preparation of a research paper ;
- To grant data providers the opportunity to review the use of the data and conclusions drawn from it.and optionally, to offer co-authorship to the GMOS-FR web portal PIs and related contacts if the GMOS-Fr data are essential to the work ;
- To cite relevant papers from the GMOS-FR web portal Pis, related contact and GMOS-FR ;
- To cite the unique and persistent identifier corresponding to site and data levels used ;
- To not redistribute the data ;
- To include acknowledgements in publications recognizing the GMOS-FR data provision with different statements following sites:
- For Amsterdam island (AMS) Dumont-D’Urville (DDU) and concordia (DMC) sites –> “Data accessible in GMOS-FR have been collected through fundings preliminary obtained by the European Union 7th Framework Programme project Global Mercury Observation System (GMOS 2010-2015) and from french polar institute GMOstral-1028 program (IPEV) from 2012 ”
