The CSHL Institutional Repository (IR) was created to collect, manage, and preserve the intellectual output produced by CSHL. The IR provides annotation, metadata, topics, and subjects for these materials. The goal is to collect all the works produced by a CSHL scientist throughout his/her career. We collect raw data, code, scripts, software, manuscripts, theses, presentations, posters, video, and audio files; as well as bibliographic information on all CSHL faculty, researchers and graduate students.
In addition to holding a meeting on open access in 2008, CSHL has supported the open access movement in several ways:
Further activities in support of open access are planned.
CSHL scientists have created or contributed to many open access databases and resources. Examples include the brain architecture project (Mitra Lab) bioinformatics databases and other resources from Stein Lab; and the computational biology and bioinformatics databases and software tools from Zhang Lab:
