Reminder! NIH Request for Information (RFI): Metrics to Assess Value of Biomedical Digital Repositories (NOT-OD-16-133)

Receipt deadline: September 30, 2016-- you have 3 days left.

They want to hear from you!  

If you use Xenbase and any other database- NCBI, MGi, etc, then you need to take this seriously and write to the NIH.

The NIH is requesting input from the community about existing and desired approaches for measuring and assessing the value of biomedical digital data repositories, like Xenbase. 
This information intended to inform the development of technical and science policy actions to support the long-term sustainability of repositories, including review criteria and evaluation metrics specific for data repository applications.

NIH welcomes a broad diversity of stakeholders to respond to this RFI, both in the roles of respondents and in the domains of biomedical science represented.         

For more information about this RFI, please see a recent blog post about this topic: https://datascience.nih.gov/blog. 

Questions and submissions should be directed to Dr. Elizabeth Hsu at NIH_Repository_Metrics_RFI at mail.nih.gov.   

Put (NOT-OD-16-133) in the subject line. 

Thanks to all this who have responded to date.
