The CNI uses Flywheel for data management and access. Please see the Flywheel page for more information regarding data access via Flywheel.

Data Sharing

This section describes the way in which data can be shared among researchers.

IRB Considerations

Before data can be shared across researchers the principal investigator responsible for the original data should make sure that provisions are in place within the approved IRB protocol that allow data sharing and assure that all requirements set forth in the protocol regarding data sharing are met.

Sharing data within the Stanford community

Those seeking to gain access to data should FIRST contact the Stanford PI who is responsible for the data to request access. Requests should be made between PIs.
Persons seeking the data (PI or Lab Manager):

    1. Find the data to be shared and note the experiment name, subject code, and session numbers.
    2. Contact the principal investigator and officially ask for the data to be shared. Contact should be between PIs.
    3. Once permission is granted you can log into Flywheel and download the data.

The persons responsible for the data (PI or Lab Manager):

    1. Assure that the IRB protocol under which the data were collected allows for data sharing.
    2. Log into Flywheel

Sharing data with collaborators outside of Stanford

Collaborators seeking to gain access to data should FIRST contact the Stanford PI who is responsible for the data to request access. If the PI agrees to share their data, then the collaborator and PI should do the following steps.

Outside collaborators

  1. Set up a SUNetID by visiting Stanford Accounts and choosing 'Create' -> 'I do not have a university ID' -> 'Continue without University ID'
  2. Follow the steps to create a SUNET ID and pick a password, etc.
  3. Your SUNETID must:
  4. Once the SUNET ID is created, email your SUNET ID the collaborating Stanford PI; he/she must give you permission to access the data.
  5. After they have confirmed that they have granted you permission navigate to the Flywheel interface, find the experiment with the data and 'Download' those data

Stanford PI

    1. After your collaborator has requested a SUNET ID, sponsor his/her account by visiting the sponsorship page, entering the SUNET ID and following the prompts to sponsor a free account.
    2. Go to the NIMS database interface and choose -> 'Manage Experiments'
    3. Find the SUNET ID of your collaborator and drag it to the experiment containing the data you wish to share.
    4. A popup will appear allowing you to choose the access level you wish to grant your collaborator. We suggest you choose read-only or anon-read.
