The GISAID initiative was founded to provide data generators with an incentive to share their data data pre-publication. As an alternative to public-domain archives where access and use of data take place anonymously, GISAID pledges to offer certain protection of data providers’ interests; transparency on the use of their data; and mechanisms to ensure acknowledgement of laboratories providing viruses or contributing data shared via the GISAID platform.
As data submitters are at the heart of GISAID mission, providing a safe space, where they can collaborate with other community members is paramount.
Therefore GISAID will under no circumstances tolerate any hateful, abusive, harassing or coercive conduct on its platform.
If you or somebody you know has experienced any of the conduct above, we encourage you to notify us as soon as possible, using the following form.
