Image

MeSH ID: n/a

Description:
The content of a graphic that captures the appearance of something within its borders.

Best practice for sharing this type of data:
Still images (including works by graphic artists, photographs, maps, graphs, technical drawings, vector graphics) should be saved as TIFF 6.0 uncompressed (.tif) (RGB colour, 24-bit or greater).

Most suitable repositories:
Many repositories host images, such as Cell Image Library, FigShare, FlyBase, Image Data Resource, MorphoBank, Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Collaboratory, Saccharomyce Genome Database, SICAS Medical Image Repository, The Cancer Imaging Archive, and WormBase.

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): http://adni.loni.usc.edu/data-samples/access-data/).

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