SBDI data

SBDI supports the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). The “FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship” were published in 2016, and emphasize machine-readability (i.e., the capacity of computational systems to find, access, interoperate, and reuse data with none or minimal human intervention) because humans increasingly rely on computational support and artificial intelligence to deal with the ever increasing data volumes and data complexity. A short summary of the guidelines is provided at the web site.

Data accessed through SBDI is free for all—but not free of obligations. Under the SBDI Terms of Use, users agree to acknowledge, reference or attribute downloaded information referred to in any published material as outlined in our citation guides or detailed in the metadata accompanying data downloads.
