MeSH ID: D013059
Analysis of the intensity of Raman scattering of monochromatic light as a function of frequency of the scattered light.
Best practice for sharing this type of data:
Raman spectra may be saved as ASCII files including frequency and intensity values of the spectra. Additional information should be provided describing the test sample and experimental conditions such as acquisition time and the wavelength of monochromatic light.
Most suitable repositories:
Data may be added to repositories such as Biological Magnetic Resonance Databank, CaltechDATA, Carbohydrate Structure Database, EPA Comptox Chemicals Dashboard, Metabolights, MolMeDB: Molecules on Membranes Database, PANGAEA, nmrshiftdb2, and Protein Data Bank in Europe.
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.
