I request access to data collected by the Mind Clinical Imaging
Consortium (MCIC) for the purpose of scientific investigation, teaching
or the planning of clinical research studies and agree to the following
1. I will receive access to
de-identified data and will not attempt to establish the identity of, or
attempt to contact any of the MCIC participants.
2. I will not further disclose these data beyond the uses outlined in this agreement and my data use application.
I will require anyone on my team who utilizes these data, or anyone
with whom I share these data to comply with this data use agreement.
I will comply with any rules and regulations imposed by my institution
and its institutional review board in requesting these data.
I will ensure that Investigators who utilize MCIC data use appropriate
administrative, physical and technical safeguards to prevent use or
disclosure of the data other than as provided for by this Agreement.
I will report any use or disclosure of the data not provided for by
this Agreement of which I become aware within 15 days of becoming aware
of such use or disclosure. Reports/disclosures should be sent via email
to Jody Roberts, Director of Research and Clinical Operations at MRN,
firstname.lastname@example.org If I publish abstracts or manuscripts using data from MCIC, I agree to the following:
I will cite MCIC as the source of data and the DOE funding source in
the publication as space allows. Ex: "The imaging data and demographic
information was collected and shared by [University of Iowa, University
of Minnesota, University of New Mexico, Massachusetts General Hospital]
the Mind Research Network supported by the Department of Energy under
Award Number DE-FG02-08ER64581."
8. I will cite
Gollub, RL, et al “The MCIC collection: a shared repository of
multi-modal, multi-site brain image data from a clinical investigation
of schizophrenia” Neuroinformatics, 2013 in all reports based on these
data, as appropriate.
9. I will include language
similar to the following in the methods section of my manuscripts in
order to accurately acknowledge data gathering by the MCIC
investigators. Depending upon the length and focus of the article, it
may be appropriate to include more or less than the example below,
however, inclusion of some variation of the language shown below is
mandatory. "Data used in the preparation of this work were obtained from
the Mind Clinical Imaging Consortium database through the Mind Research
. The MCIC project was supported by the Department
of Energy under Award Number DE-FG02-08ER64581. MCIC is the result of
efforts of co-investigators from University of Iowa, University of
Minnesota, University of New Mexico, Massachusetts General Hospital.
I understand that failure to abide by these guidelines will result in termination of my privileges to access MCIC data.
