CTD² Publication Guidelines

The Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD²) Network is a “community resource project” supported by the National Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Genomics. Members of the Network release data to the broader research community by depositing data into NCI-supported or public databases. Data deposition is NOT equivalent to publishing in a peer-reviewed journal. Unless there is a manuscript associated with a dataset, the Network considers data to be formally unpublished. Therefore, standard scientific etiquette and practices should be used when: (1) working with data produced by the Network, and/or (2) publishing results generated using Network data.

CTD² requests authors who use Network data acknowledge CTD² as follows: “The results published here are fully or partially based upon data generated by the Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD²) Network (https://ocg.cancer.gov/programs/ctd2/data-portal) established by the National Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Genomics.”

If the data being used corresponds to a manuscript(s) published by the CTD² Center, CTD² requests that authors properly reference the original research paper(s) associated with the project.

The Network also requests that researchers who use the CTD² Dashboard as a resource for their studies to acknowledge and cite the manuscript Aksoy, Dančík, Smith et al., Database 2017;1-10 and provide the URL https://ctd2-dashboard.nci.nih.gov/dashboard/.
