MeSH ID: D004562

Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the heart as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a Cathode Ray Tube Display.

Best practice for sharing this type of data:
Signal data should be stored and shared in an open format such as the Standard Communications Protocol for computer assisted Electrocardiography (SCP-ECG) format.

Most suitable repositories:
Data may be deposited in repositories intended for ECG outputs such as EDDI and EDGAR

Best practice for indicating re-use of existing data:
For public datasets please provide a DOI or other stable identified for the dataset itself *and* include a citation for the dataset in the reference list. Be sure to indicate exactly which data has been re-used, particularly when multiple versions of the dataset exist. In many cases, this is best achieved by sharing the code used to extract the part of the data that you analyzed. In some cases it may be best to share the exact dataset(s) you analyzed as well.

For access-controlled data authors should provide a link to instructions for obtaining access (e.g. here is the information page for ADNI (Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative):

When re-using a private dataset from a previous study please contact the data owners to discuss how the data can be made public.
