Editorial Board affirms Open Access designation of GISAID

re3data.org and DataCite, the world’s leading provider of digital object identifiers (DOI) for research data, affirmed the designation of access to GISAID's database and data as Open Access. A persistent link for this designation has been assigned to GISAID for citation purposes ().  

GISAID also satisfies all conditions of the definition for open access contributions of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, last but not least, due to GISAID's ability "to provide a mechanism to enforce proper attribution“ through its user identification procedures, validating terms of use and licenses.
