About the Group

Public Description

The National Cancer Informatics Program (NCIP) NanoWG has undertaken a project to develop a shared vision for curation of nanoscale material and system data (nano curation). A series of consensus papers on nano curation sub-topics of interest is being developed communally for publication via the NCIP NanoWG Hub, in order to:

• Capture a snapshot of current curation practices and concerns, and

• Develop recommendations for moving the nanoinformatics community toward increasingly standardized curation practices.

This page is the online hub for the Nanomaterial Data Curation Initiative; joining this group allows you to follow the initiative as a whole.  You will need to create a NCIP Hub account to request access to the Nanomaterial Data Curation Initiative Group. You can individually join each curation paper project that interests you by entering you name and e-mail in the author and community liaison contact spreadsheet  stored in the project folder. (Click on "projects" tab on the left panel, select a project, open "files" folder.)
