National Sleep Research Resource (NSRR)
Academic User’s Group Meeting and Conference Call Minutes
Monday, March 1, 2014 12pm - 1pm EST
Via Conference Call:
Response to Feedback from Previous Call: S. Redline gave update on the response to feedback from previous AUG call (01/31).
Response to Feedback w/ S. Warby and P. Peppard: In response to feedback from AUG members, S. Warby and P. Peppard, priorities have been focused to providing thorough data dictionaries to allow mapping within cohorts, rather than across cohorts
Updates to Data Resource: SleepData.org will be released to the public on Tuesday, April 1. All SHHS studies will be made available, once users are granted access. SHHS data is linked to BioLINCC using a common ID. CHAT data will be released and made available ~July 1.
New ABOUT page: About page was created for NSRR members and AUG members to introduce users to our team.
New Tools: The purpose of provided tools is to work tightly with data provided in data set. Tools are designed to do ‘pre-processing’ of dataset for users.
DAUA Process and Updates: DAUA process has been established. All users must submit a DAUA, along with IRB review/approval, in order to obtain access to the data sets. Each data set will require a separate DAUA from each user. The DAUA grants the user approval for 3-years of access to the data set or until the expiration date, as outlined in the user’s IRB approval.
Other enhancements planned: We plan on providing a forum for users to meet other researchers from the community. Strength of forums is driven by users, not by the format of the forum.
